This combined memoir and political analysis was written by the Nobel Prize winner after defecting from Communist Poland in the early 1950s. It includes his experiences during the Nazi Occupation of Poland and his subsequent embrace of, and growing disenchantment with Stalinism as an author in the People's Republic of Poland.
