A whole Autumn of citybooks in Magazyn Lubelski
Mauro Pawlowski’s citybook about Lublin appeared in the September issue of LAJF Magzyn Lubelski, and you can now also read it on the citybooks website. In the following editions of LAJF, you will find Maud Vanhauwaert’s Lublin’s Stations of the Cross, Andrzej Stasiuk’s Lublin, about the city of the same name, and Marcin Wroński’s Postcards from Chartres too.
Maud Vanhauwaert visited an exhibition in Lublin that inspired a story about the wife of an artist in Lublin’s Stations of the Cross. ‘Some cited the loneliness that crept over her. Others the melancholy and Tymon once called it, in the company of his friends, after quite a few glasses of wine: ‘death’s cunning endeavour’.’ Read the October issue here (from p.56)
Marcin Wroński hails from Lublin and travelled to the French city of Chartres for citybooks. His citybook is no light-hearted holiday greeting. Through the Postcards from Chartres, carefully preserved in an old chocolate box by the aged Sophie Fasolette, the young nurse Miriam comes to discover a foreign world of Jewish people in hiding, censorship and learning to live with very big secrets. His citybook is published in February 2013 (from p. 54).
Andrzej Stasiuk wraps up warm against the icy wind in Lublin, and asks himself if he can view the city without looking into the past. ‘Someone’s going to say: yet another piece about the Jews. But that’s not true. I’m writing about us. The ones who remained. About the fact that we have filled the space from which they disappeared.’
View his citybook here in the November edition (from p. 56).
