Libera

Antoni Libera was born in 1949. He graduated from Warsaw University and received his doctorate from the Polish Academy of Sciences. He has been occupied with Samuel Beckett’s works for many years, which he has translated into Polish and directed on stage.

Madame, Libera’s debut novel, was celebrated as a great literary event. It was on the bestseller lists, was nominated for the most important Polish literature prize, the Nike, and was awarded the prestigious Andrzej Kijowski prize. It was not long before interest in the book extended beyond Poland’s borders. It has already been published in the US, in Germany and in Hungary, and translations into other languages, including Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Norwegian and Greek, are in progress.
