Theater and Communist Poland) – a biography of a prominent Polish actress and social activist, Halina Mikołajska (1925-1989), presented in the context of Polish postwar theater and the history of Communist Poland from beginning to end. The book gained wide recognition and was nominated for several major literary awards.
