Tworki

Tworki - Marek Bieńczyk, Marek Bieńczyk, Benjamin Paloff, Andrew Baruch Wachtel A very poetic book, very well translated by Benjamin Paloff, who is a poet himself. This isn't a "light" read, and you shouldn't pick it up unless you want something you can sink your teeth into. It's set in a mental hospital where the protagonist (himself a budding writer) works as a bookkeeper during World War II. The mental hospital is a place that is sheltered from the war, but the war manages to intrude anyway, despite the hero's best efforts to protect his friends from it.
