The Polish Complex

The Polish Complex

Tadeusz Konwicki Robert McLaughlin Richard Lourie
3.5/5 (256 ratings)
The Polish Complex takes place on Christmas Eve, from early morning until late in the evening, as a line of people stand and wait in front of a jewelry store in Warsaw. Through the narrator we are told of what happens among those standing in line outside this store, what happens as the narrator's mind thinks and rants about the current state of Poland, and what happens as he imagines the failed Polish rebellion of 1863. The novel's form allows Konwicki to roam around and through Poland's past and present, and to range freely through whatever comes to his attention. By turns comic, lyrical, despairing, and liberating, The Polish Complex stands as one of the most important novels to have come out of Poland since World War II.
