We hope that this list will serve as a discussion forum dealing with all aspects of Polish studies, as well as a place to post announcements of upcoming events or new publications. Although this is not a requirement, we encourage all those who participate in H-Poland to join the PSA.

Leopold Tyrmand with Benjamin Paloff: Encounters with Polish Literature S3E3

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Hooligans and bikiniarzy are the heroes of Leopold Tyrmand's 1954 novel of Warsaw, Evil (Zły, published in English as The Man with the White Eyes), which is the main subject of the latest episode of "Encounters with Polish Literature" with my guest, Prof. Benjamin Paloff (UMich). Tyrmand also played a major role in introducing jazz to Poland, and there is a new film out in Poland based on his novel Filip, inspired by his experience working on false papers as a waiter in Nazi Germany.
