Previously: The Doll by Bolesław Prus—if anyone knows how to get a copy of the 1968 movie Lalka directed by Wojciech Has, please let me know.
Success? I placed an interlibrary loan for a VHS copy I found...wish me luck. It may be a few months before it gets to me but I can be patient. Some times. I'm enjoying the book so much I also have his later book Pharaoh lined up, but I'll probably wait until the end of the year for that.
And I keep adding more I want to read...having planned to watch Ashes and Diamonds I'll probably add Jerzy Andrzejewski's book on which it was based. Not to mention my library just received Satantango by László Krasznahorkai.
Once again my appetite is larger than my ability to digest...
