This chapter discusses Black Seasons. This book is a compelling first-person narrative about how a Jewish boy who turned five years old in 1939 survived the Nazi occupation of Poland during the Second World War. The boy, Michał Głowiński (hereafter G), went on to become one of Poland's leading literary scholars and is currently a professor at the Polish Academy of Sciences' Institute of Literary Studies in Warsaw. Black Seasons often comes across as a drama driven by the powerful and ubiquitous tension facing G between life and death (życie i śmierć). There is constant reference to his vulnerability. Death could strike not only in a small bakery on the street, but at the hands of a neatly turned-out man who shows up at the apartment door without cause or warning. And yet the book hardly shows anyone actually dying. And G himself manages, of course, to elude his pursuer time and time again.
