The Sins of Childhood and Other Stories

Boleslav Prus

This is the first English-language collection of stories by the nineteenth-century writer Boleslaw Prus, who has been called the greatest Polish novelist of all time. This new book, containing twelve of his classic short pieces, explores the depth of thought, human warmth, powers of observation, and technical excellence for which he has been justly praised.

Prus has been called the greatest Polish novelist of all time.
Reviews
"Having any idea of what Polish literature is about without being familiar with at least a handful of short stories of Prus is exactly as unthinkable as understanding Russian literature without knowing any short story by Chekhov." --Stanislaw Baranczak
"Nothing should discourage one from reading these tales, which form a bridge from a painful present to a more luminous time." --Choice
"Prus proves himself one of the most attractive and accomplished storytellers of his time." --Kirkus Reviews
