Joseph Conrad: A Life
Joseph Conrad: A Life
by Zdzislaw Najder
Camden House, New Edition, April 2007

When I reviewed the first English edition of this book in 1984, I called it "the richest and most persuasive portrait of Conrad we have had or will probably ever have." Once again, Professor Najder sets the very highest biographical standard. Everything that has come to light about Conrad during the past quarter-century is now seamlessly integrated into the revised text. – Frederick Crews, Professor Emeritus, U.C. Berkeley

The Wall in My Head:
Words & Images from the Fall of the Iron Curtain
edited by Words without Borders

Open Letter Books, November 2009

The Wall in My Head is an exciting anthology of texts and images by writers and artists who witnessed the collapse of Communism firsthand and by those who grew up in its wake. Polish authors Zbigniew Herbert, Pawel Huelle, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Dorota Maslowska, and Andrzej Stasiuk are featured.

The editors have arranged these high-caliber works to create a tension between celebratory and somber writing, and that gives the book a touch of greatness.– The Brooklyn Rail
