About the Author
Gustaw Herling was born in 1919 in Kielce, Poland. In 1940, he was captured by the Russians and spent two years in a Soviet labor camp. After WWII, he founded the Polish magazine Kulture, which virtually sustained Polish culture during Communist rule. He settled finally in Naples, where he died in 2000.
Bill Johnston is the leading translator of Polish literature in the United States. His translation of Tadeusz Rózewicz's new poems won the 2008 Found in Translation Award and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Poetry Award.
Reviews
"Gustaw Herling was one of the most important witnesses of the twentieth century, a heroic man and truly worthy writer."
"Reading [Herting]...I felt an exhilaration that was like the exhilaration of that first moment of being touched and in some ways shattered by great prose."
