Mikolaj Grynberg

Mikołaj Grynberg (b. 1966) is a photographer, author and trained psychologist. His literary work has focused on the oral histories of different generations of Polish Jews in the second half of the twentieth century. He has published three collections of “conversations” based on these histories: Survivors of the 20th Century (2012), I Accuse Auschwitz: Family Stories (2014), and The Book of Exodus (2018). In Rejwach (Commotion) (2017), his first work of fiction, Grynberg adapts these histories into monologues highlighting modern Poland’s complex and difficult relationship with its Jewish past. The book has been widely praised and was shortlisted for Poland’s top literary prize, the Nike. The English translation will be published by The New Press and rights have also sold in France (Actes Sud) and Spain (Quaderns Crema). An extract was published by Jewish Currents. Grynberg has just published a new book called Poufne (Confidential).
