Overview

This major prose work, originally published in English in 1985, is both a moving spiritual self-portrait and an unflinching inquiry into the genesis of our modern afflictions. A man who was raised a Catholic in rural Lithuania, lived through the Nazi occupation of Poland, and emerged, first in Europe and then in America, as one of our most important men of letters, speaks here of the inherited dilemmas of our civilization in a voice recognizable for its honesty and passion.

What People are Saying About This

Larry McMurtry

A lyrical account of a rural boyhood, dominated by family, nature and village life...one is constantly aware of being in the hands of a master -- of a talent that is original, unhurried, almost serene...he is a remarkable writer.
