An adhered woman. Zofia Beksińska in Magdalena Grzebałkowska’s book Beksińscy. Portret podwójny (The Beksińskis. A Double Portrait)
In the article I discuss the narrative method used by Magdalena Grzebałkowska in her reportage book about the Beksiński family. Using as my example Zofia, the most difficult character to describe — as she is the most “elusive” among all protagonists — I analyse the means used by the reporter to portray her. The starting point of the analysis is the findings concerning the links between documentary literature and historical writings as well as biographies.
