Article

Born into a wealthy landed family, Gombrowicz debuted in the avant-garde milieu of interwar Warsaw. In 1939, when the Germans invaded Poland, he was on a journalistic assignment in Argentina, where he spent most of his adult life. Most of Gombrowicz’s works were first printed by the Polish expatriate press in Paris. In 1963 he returned to Europe. Retiring to Vence, in the south of France, he never saw his native land again.
