Photograph by Ulf Andersen, Getty. I will never forget a late-night conversation I had seven years ago, around the table of a modest kitchen in a small town in southern Poland, when an impressively inebriated man-a distant relative-implored me with tear-filled eyes to get the message to Obama, as quickly as possible, that a missile shield pointed east, at Moscow, was a dire necessity.

WARSAW - Tadeusz Konwicki, whose alternately grim, surreal and acidly ironic novels and films made him one of Poland’s most important cultural figures, died on Jan. 7 at his home in central Warsaw. He was 88. His death was reported by Polish news media. Mr. Konwicki’s most acclaimed novel, A Minor Apocalypse, is widely considered among the most important works of post-World War II Eastern European literature and remains required reading for all Polish high school students.

Absolute gem of a book. Funny, and says so much, so simply.

Konwicki's writing is a dream. A very funny dream.
Freaky Hook
While reading the excellent "The Essential Guide To Being Polish" I came across a reference to the "Polish Complex," a very popular mindset among Poles, which co-author, Anna Spysz, refers to as "a national superiority complex and a sense of martyrdom wrapped up inside an inferiority complex in one big confusing, paradoxical mess." Anyone who is objectively familiar with the American Polonia community can attest to the accuracy of that description.

For further reading regarding this Polish attitude Spyz recommends "The Polish Complex" by Tadeusz Konwicki. Intrigued, I borrowed the book from my local library. Konwicki weaves a tale involving several Poles, including himself, standing in line at a bare-shelved Warsaw jewelry store in the 1970s waiting to buy a present for a loved one on Christmas Eve. The characters ruminate and banter with each other regarding circumstances in Soviet-ruled Poland. Historic situations are recalled involving Poland's fight for freedom during the partitions. This book was quite revolutionary when it was first published by the Polish underground press in 1977. There are some funny moments mixed with plenty of despair and just a dash of hope. The Polish Complex is not an easy book to read but offers valuable insight into Polish attitudes during the communist years and even beyond. But after thirty-six years including twenty-four years of Polish independence this venerable piece of dissident literature has definitely lost some relevance.
