Self-portrait With Woman

Book - 1995
Rate this:
"A Warsaw sociologist is summoned to Geneva to participate in an oral-history project about the collapse of Eastern European communism and resolves to tell his own story through a gallery of portraits of the many women he has loved. These reminiscences emerge against the broader canvas of circumstances and events that have shaped the past sixty years of Poland's turbulent, tragic history. Soon he finds himself inexorably drawn to his interrogator from the "free" world, the chronicler of his life, the keeper of his secrets, and his heart's last hope for redemptive love." "Self-Portrait with Woman is at once a haunting and lyrical portrait of a man, of a country, and of the twilight years of an era."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
