2019 Kapuściński  

Ryszard Kapuściński: A Life

Original title in Polish: Kapuściński Non-Fiction

by Artur Domosławski

Agata Pyzik in The Guardian: "Kapuściński" has long been one of Poland's few internationally recognised names, comparable to "Miłosz" or "Polanski". His vivid literary reporting of the uses and misuses of power, in the books The Emperor, The Soccer War and Shah of Shahs, was widely read in the 1980s and beyond, partly because of the author's unique position (a star reporter emerging from the darkness of communist Poland, then in the midst of martial law after a failed workers revolt) but mainly for its unusual style – personal, meticulous, literary, digressive. Both the author and his "hero", friend and mentor stand out from what was acceptable during the cold war, and today."
