Żeromski – Memoirs

We come to Żeromski’s apartment and see him dozing at his desk. Did he fall asleep while working? Our arrival wakes him up, but he is not annoyed. He seems rather inclined to confide in his unexpected guests. Glancing at his Diaries he returns to the years spent in school. Delightful anecdotes intermingle with a narrative about the poverty and difficulties of his youth. We learn how his novel The Works of Sisyphus was created because of the reality in which he lived. We listen to the prose of Żeromski surrounded by furniture and objects which he used in the last years of his life.
