    In this bitterly funny novel by the renowned Polish author Witold Gombrowicz, a writer finds himself tossed into a chaotic world of schoolboys by a diabolical professor who wishes to reduce him to childishness. Originally published in Poland in 1937, Ferdydurke became an instant literary sensation and catapulted its young author to fame. Deemed scandalous and subversive by Nazis, Stalinists, and the Polish Communist regime in turn, the novel was officially banned in Poland for decades. It has nonetheless remained one of the most influential works of twentieth century European literature. Ferdydurke is translated here directly from the Polish for the first time, allowing English speakers to experience fully the masterpiece of a writer whom Milan Kundera describes as 'one of the great novelists of our century.'

    Winner of the National Book Award. Operatic in the scope and intensity of the emotions it depicts, Sontag's last novel achieves a kaleidoscopic portrait of America on the cusp of modernity. The book's gripping narrative centers on a group of Poles led by Maryna Zalezowksa, Poland's greatest actress, who emigrate to the United States in 1876. Forging an even more triumphant career on the American stage, Maryna - now, as Marina Zalenska - forms her own company and crisscrosses the country in her private railroad car, year after year, eventually playing opposite Edwin Booth, the greatest American actor of the age. 387p.

    • Published: September 2003
    Written between 1977-1980, the novel is a lost masterpiece, whose author never saw a single page of his literary work published during his lifetime. In it, a narrator is in a train going to Leningrad, mid-April 1867; also aboard are the newly wed Dostoyevskys, Fydor and Anna, who are on their way to Germany for a trip that will keep them abroad four years. Neither fantasy nor docu-novel, the book gets everything right due to its author's obsession with the details of Dostoyevsky's life. 176p. Pap.
