The Polish Boxer free pdf "Elegant "Marie Claire" "Funny and revelatory." "New York Times Book Review" "Deeply accessible, deeply moving." "Los Angeles Times" "The Polish Boxer" covers a vast landscape of human experience while enfolding a search for origins: a grandson tries to make sense of his Polish grandfather's past and the story behind his numbered tattoo- a Serbian classical pianist longs for his forbidden heritage- a Mayan poet is torn between his studies and filial obligations- a striking young Israeli woman seeks answers in Central America- a university professor yearns for knowledge that he can't find in books and discovers something unexpected at a Mark Twain conference. Drawn to what lies beyond the range of reason, they all reach for the beautiful and fleeting, whether through humor, music, poetry, or unspoken words. Across his encounters with each of them, the narratora Guatemalan literature professor and writer named Eduardo Halfonpursues his most enigmatic subject: himself. Mapping the geography of identity in a world scarred by a legacy of violence and exile, "The Polish Boxer "marks the debut of a major new Latin American voice in English.
