Read from November 21 to 25, 2012

Read in original, and I can't really imagine how on earth it can be translated. The rythm of the language, the play of words, the absolutely unique phrasing - oh my, it must have been a tough challenge for the translator. Dream-like and painfully real at the same time. And very interesting from purely historical point of view - a Polish guy stranded in Argentina after the WW2 broke out. An insight to a rich, complex soul living in shocking times.
