Twardoch is a Silesian and his books have a different perspective on the Polish-German relations, colored by the fate of Silesian province and the experience of Poles living there under the German rule for centuries. His notable books include Morphine / Morfina about a Polish-German morphine addict trying to avoid hard choices in face of the 1939 WWII German invasion of Poland.
