Populist as ever (!), you'll notice that this week is Piotr Rawicz week here on RSB. My two Books of the Week are the astonishing Blood from the Sky (Elliott & Thompson) and Anthony Rudolf's incisive reading of that work, Engraved in Flesh: Piotr Rawicz and His Novel "Blood from the Sky" (Menard Press). I'm also thrilled to have been allowed to reproduce Anthony's Afterword to Blood from the Sky here on the site, which is just about the best introduction to Rawicz that you'll find anywhere.

  1. I've read Rudolf's incisive book on Rawicz and am now making my way through Blood from the Sky - an important contribution to modern literature and possibly one of the most harrowing novels to come out of post-WWII Europe. Highly recommend both.
