The book’s editor once served as Melchior Wanńkowicz’s secretary, and is intimately acquainted with this author’s works and life. Wańkowicz left her his archives. It was a painstaking job to prepare these husband-and-wife letters for print and add numerous footnotes. Wańkowicz was lucky to have had this secretary. Her loyalty and her dedicated work on his behalf can only be dreamed about by so many other excellent writers.
