Bruno Schulz was born in 1892. He lived in Drohobycz, Galicia, where he taught art at a secondary school, and drew and wrote in his spare time. In 1934 he published a collection of stories, Cinnamon Shops, followed by another, Sanatorium under the Sign of the Hourglass, three years later. During the Second World War, he was confined to the ghetto in Drohobycz. One day in 1942, he ventured to the 'Aryan' quarter, where he was recognized by a Gestapo officer and shot dead in the street.
The Collected Works of Bruno Schulz, which brings together his stories, letters, articles and drawings in one volume for the first time, is a book that finally does justice to one of the gifted and influential writers of the century.
Edited by Jerzy Ficowski.
