Description
Information
A remarkable, multifaceted story made up of journal accounts, memories, conversations and personal experience, 'The Bronski House' is a paean to Poland, a landmark in travel writing, and family history - tied together by the unique experience of returning from exile.

In the summer of 1992, accompanied by Philip Marsden, the exiled poet Zofia Hinska stepped into the Belorussian village where she had spent her childhood. The Bronski House is in part the remarkable story of what she found. It is also the story of her mother, Helena Bronska – of her coming of age during the Russian revolution, her dramatic escapes from Bolsheviks, Germans and partisans, of her love and loss in a now vanished world. It brilliantly reconstructs a world which vanished in 1939 when Soviet tanks rolled into eastern Poland.
