Languages of publication
Born in Krakow, a journalist and a writer, Dorota Terakowska did not debut until she was over 40. Not until 50–60 years old, did she achieve her literary success. Ever since, Terakowska was awarded numerous prizes; her books enjoyed good readership and were released many times. She earned wide recognition for her focus on the themes of a human lost in the world, seeking for inalienable values; often disabled or facing the end of his or her life. Terakowska’s works constitute an attempt at systemic recognition of human condition in entirety of its psychological, sociological and cultural complexity, thus forming a generative script. Her prose and journalism provide an excellent example of how one can piece the individual and the human aspects of life with the social and cultural contexts. Depicting the lives of elderly people, in the ups and downs of the autumn of their days took a prominent place in the works of Krakow-born writer and journalist (e.g. Granny Brigid’s crazy trip round Krakow, Mr. Gryms’ Mirror, Where the Angels Fall, Chrysalis, It, To be a family…, Man is the good address, The Museum of Non-existent Things).
