Life on Earth: The Year Is '42

Please see On An Overgrown Path's post on Ukrainian-born writer
Nella Bielski's new novel The Year is '42, which places the
setting of this new novel within the context of the major world
classical music compositional events during those terrible war years.



Other books newly purchased this past weekend, but as of yet unread:

Czeslaw Milosz's new volume of Warsaw war-time essays and letter-essays; and Stephan Wackwitz's new Sebald-like memoir An Invisible Country.

Dr Wackwitz has most recently been director of the Goethe Institutes of Krakow, Poland and Bratislava, Slovak Republic.

Lucy Beckett on "Czeslaw Milosz reappraised" TLS October 18, 2005.



Szetejnie, a rural town in Lithuania. Birthplace of Czeslaw Milosz (1911-2004).
