The Club invites new members to discuss books in Polish.
The book for the meeting is Ślepnąc od świateł by Jakub Żulczyk, published in 2018 by Świat Książki. The book is the first person account of the frenzied life of a cocaine dealer and a portrait of the brutal underground world that underpins Warsaw – cocaine and other drugs are just a commodity and a lubricant that like money makes the life to go on in the corrupted capital city.
Żulczyk is a bard of disillusioned generation Z or Millennials in Poland, and end of all illusion is one of the themes of the book. His uncompromised approach to showing the life of his peers as is, earned him respect of the critics on par with Dorota Masłowska and nominations to prestigious awards. He is also a successful script writer, notably for the TV series Bad Teacher / Belfer. Ślepnąc od świateł has been picked up as a successful TV series by HBO.
