About this product
- DescriptionA unique mix of prose and poetry, of the joy of life and the agony of loss, in Mother Departs Rozewicz creates a rich and complex portrait of his mother Stefania and of her indelible influence on her extraordinary family. Weaving together fragments from diaries, stories and tebooks - including moving texts written by his two brothers and Stefania herself - Rozewicz creates a portrait of their lives and relationships which is sometimes brutal, often hilarious, and always tender. Here is an artist attempting to give form, even meaning, to life - and death.
