About the Author

The renowned Polish author, Witold Gombrowicz (1904-1969) lived, virtually unknown, in Argentina, writing novels, stories, and plays for twenty-five years before taking up residence in France. He wrote four novels, Trans-Atlantyk, Cosmos, Pornografia, and Ferdydurke, which, together with his plays and his three-volume Diary, have been translated into more than thirty languages.

Reviews

"[A] sly, funny, absorbing fourth novel and lovingly translated by Danuta Borchardt" --Neil Gordon, The New York Times Book Review

"A master of verbal burlesque, a connoisseur of psychological blackmail, Gombrowicz is one of the profoundest late moderns, with one of the lightest touches." --John Updike "Cosmos is a vicious and uncompromised little gem of the obscene." --Adam Novy, The Believer "Borchardt's graceful, powerful, and inventive translation is a great gift to all lovers of Witold Gombrowicz's quirky prose." --Jaroslaw Anders on Cosmos "[Cosmos] will hold special appeal for fans of Camus' The Stranger. In this deft new translation, Cosmos, reveals itself as a challenging but important work."--Frank Sennett, Booklist (starred review) "Probably the most important 20th-century novelist most Western readers have never heard of." --Benjamin Paloff, Words Without Borders "Cosmos is a compulsively unsettling philosophical drama veiled as a quotidian mystery. . . . Borchardt's new English translation conveys a world wrought with an interconnectedness, or perceived interconnectedness, that struggles to understand meaningfully a series of events that defy logical association."--David Thomas Holmberg, Rocky Mountain Review of Language and Literature
