Translated by Ursula Phillips
“Boundary is an integral part of the Polish literary canon and an important achievement of European modernism. The translation will undoubtedly reshape the transatlantic version of that canon and fortify the presence of the author among English language readers.” —Bozena Shallcross, University of Chicago
"Zofia Nalkowska has written a first-class novel. . . . It is amazing that we have had to wait over eighty years to read it in English, and we should be grateful that we can now do so." —The Modern Novel
Available for the first time in English, Zofia Nalkowska’s Boundary was originally published as Granica in Poland in 1935. The modernist novel was widely discussed upon its publication and praised for its psychological realism and stylistic and compositional artistry. Over the years, it has been translated into several languages and made into a feature film, and remains a standard text in the Polish secondary school curriculum.
