Nobody reads his novels better than Michał Witkowski himself. He can hear all those little things ordinary reader cannot even notice. His interpretation, overwhelmed with distinctive 'queerness', stays in memory for a long time becoming the only possible theatrical interpretation of the text.
Although the hero of Barbara Radziwiłłówna from Jaworzno-Szczakowa (published by W.A.B. in 2007) isn't writer's peer, author's knowledge of the era, for him purely historical, is nearly physical. Mr Hubert is the embodiment of all the swindles of communist Poland and early capitalism era and all those twisting spiritual transformations of recent times. He appears to be a very suspicious type also from the literary point of view - how can you trust someone who's openly writing a novel throughout all the novel?
Barbara Radziwiłłówna Show reveals all the entanglement of Mr Hubert's soul. And Michał Witkowski as the king of the pawnshops and the pearl-diver at the scrap-heap of everyday life for a moment becomes the creator and the material.
