Witold Gombrowicz (1904-1969) was one of the foremost visionaries of twentieth-century world literature. A Polish dissident who sought refuge in Argentina during the Second World War, his irreverent, satirical works include “The Marriage,” “Ferdydurke,” “Memoirs Of A Time Of Immaturity,” and “Trans-Atlantic.”
