Andrzej Szczypiorski is one of the major figures in world literature.

In The Shadow Catcher, he tells the story of a boy who comes of age as the world around him begins to fall apart.

At fifteen, Krzys is the adored and sheltered son of a wealthy Polish family; it is the moment just before World War II, which will forever change their lives, but Krzys is only partly aware of what is happening around him.

He lives in a world shrouded in silent cries and fleeting whispers -- here his awakening into manhood is accompanied by a sense of imminent doom.

The Shadow Catcher is a richly evocative, heartbreaking novel about the loss of innocence and the vanishing of the old world.
