Yes, I've shelved this as both fiction and non-fiction. Because while I believe one of the tales is entirely true, the others are made up - or at best fictionalised, exaggerated retellings of possibly-real events.

Kaspuscinski does have a way with words. The stories are very compelling. But it is supposed to be journalism - we're supposed to be getting the facts (the plot), not a story. It reads more like someone's personal blog than journalism for a mass audience, and that leaves me confused about how to approach it.
