Description  more details

"For more than two hundred years, Polish emigres have written poignantly about the pain of exile in letters, diaries, and essays; others, more recently, have recreated Polish-American communities in works of fiction. But it is Danuta Mostwin's fiction, until now unavailable in English translation, that bridges the divide between Poland and America, between exile and emigration. Mostwin and her husband survived the ravages of World War II, traveled to Britain, and later immigrated to the United States. In her adopted country, Mostwin devoted her scholarly career to the study of immigrants trapped between two cultural worlds. Winner of many international awards for her fiction and for her theoretical work in the social sciences, Danuta Mostwin here presents two novellas translated by the late Marta Erdman and Nina Dyke, the first of her literary works to be published in English in the United States."
