In his début novel, nominated for the NIKE 2010 award, Piotr Paziñski writes about a young man from the postwar generation who encounters the ghosts of former boarding house residents near Warsaw. The Jewish life in Poland that survived the Holocaust is now dying a slow death, and the protagonist is confronted with echoes, shadows and the lingering reverberations of memories which refuse to let go of him.
