This book examines, for the first time in English the literary work of Tadeusz Konwicki, one of the most popular and widely translated twentieth-century Polish writers whose prose reflects post-war Polish history, politics, and Sovietisation. In portraying the impact of these changes on people in general and on the intelligentsia in particular, Konwicki recreated the complex Polish-Jewish-Belorussian-Lithuanian world that disappeared by 1945 but survived in the collective memory of the Polish people. Despite Konwicki's wide-ranging topics and literary styles, the monograph has competently knitted these together around the question of living in the post-Holocaust world by: analysing the political and cultural themes of Konwicki's fiction; examining Konwicki's prose, along with some of his films, which have brought him international renown; engaging an impressive number of other critical works about Konwicki; and by explaining the political and social context in which Konwicki's fiction appeared.
