A Treatise on Shelling Beans
A NovelBook - 2013
Wieslaw Mysliwski returns with another brilliant translation by Bill Johnston. From its opening invitation for the reader to 'please, come on in', the direct address from the narrator draws the reader into a conversational style that is highly amusing, perceptive and human. And in this unforgettable voice the narrator meditates upon the role of fate and chance in human lives, reflecting on how far the traumatic events of his childhood and of Poland's history has shaped his person.
