In this bitterly funny novel a writer finds himself tossed into a chaotic world of schoolboys by a diabolical professor who wishes to reduce him to childishness. Originally published in Poland in 1937,Ferdydurkewas deemed scandalous and subversive by Nazis, Stalinists, and the Polish Communist regime in turn and was officially banned in Poland for decades. It has nonetheless remained one of the most influential works of twentieth-century European literature."Ferdydurke, among its centrifugal charms, includes some of the truest and funniest literary satire in print."—John Updike"A wonderfully subversive, self-absorbed, hilarious book. Think Kafka translated by Groucho Marx, with commentaries."—Kirkus Reviews"The author's exuberant humor, suggesting the absurdist drama of Eugéne Ionesco, if not the short fiction of Franz Kafka, is readily apparent in this new translation. . . . Highly recommended."—Richard Koss,Library JournalWinner of the 2001 National Translation Award given by the American Literary Translators Association

Witold Gombrowicz (1904-1969), the single most important Polish prose writer of the 20th century, spent much of his life in France and Argentina (Bacacay was the street he lived on in Buenos Aires). His novels include Ferdydurke, Trans-Atlantyk, Cosmos, and Pornografia. Awarded the Prix Formentor (1967).
