Andrzej Stasiuk

Biography

Andrzej Stasiuk was born in Warsaw in 1960. After primary school, he went to a secondary school, from which he was expelled. He did not have any more formal schooling. He joined a pacifist organisation and then, when he was drafted into the army, deserted, for which he served a year and a half in prison. He describes his experience in prison in his first collection of stories Mury Hebronu [Walls of Hebron]. This collection was very controversial, because it was very violent and used a lot of obscenities in describing prison life. His most successful work has been the novel Biały kruk (White Raven), though he has written short stories, poetry and essays, the latter particularly about the new realities of Central and Eastern Europe. He and his wife founded a publishing house called Czarne, named after the village where they live.
