Miłosne gry Marka HłaskiMiłosne Gry Marka Hłaski.
Marek Hłasko (1934-1969)  became a legend during his life (being alife). He is an literature equivalent of  James Dean who he affected by the way.  He didn't agree the komunist system so he left Poland and then he has been never let to come back. He lived in Frnace, in Israel, USA, Germany. He died in mysterious circumstances in Wiesbaden. Up to now people argue on this subject. Some say he overdosed medicines and alcohol, some say he was murdered, some - he commited suicide.
His created his life the same way like his literature just why he become a legend. Outstanding in both of hem.
He was worshiped by women (in Poland and abroad) and loved by men but he didn't want to love men and he couldn't love women.

And that is just that what the book is about.  About games of love of great man and writer as he is a hero by himself.

PajęczynaPajęczyna (The Web)
"We acted gropingly. In order to enter the circle of used to be workers of Sekret Service (SB) we must be introduce in. There where only one of them who could do that. They ask to keep their names secret. They confirmed the system has changed but the methods must stayed the same. They resembled each other. They similarly could not listen. They boggled at questions.  They prefered to speak by themselves. They suspended our meetings without any important reason. We participate in the game to which they wrote scenario. We took their rules."
There were social and psychological portraits of  men of Secret Service(SB) written in the book and there was revealed the mechanism of work of SB. The book shows up such a sensational facts like that a wife o polish famous writer and oppositionist Paweł Jasienica was a secret agent of SB and she wrote information against  him all the time they had been together. The revelation has been confirm later on when the archives of SB were opened. 

In 1992 there was the first edition of the "Pajęczyna". It has had two more editions, one in a collective book "Teczki czyli widma bezpieki" - Publisher BGW, and third of the same title "Pajęczyna" published by ABC Future.

DziewczynyDziewczyny (Girls)
I would like to make it clear what this book isn't. It's not pornography though it's not lacking in shocking descriptions. It's not a guide to becoming a prostitute, any girls who are thinking about choosing that type of life will understand, after reading my book, what awaits them, I know that many don't. It's not a work of fiction or gossip. Even though all the characters, events and dialogues are authentic, I have decided not to give names, addresses and other details so my characters will not suffer as a result of appearing in the book.

All the people I spoke to when writing the book, men and girls, were very honest. The girls told me about the things that their parents, friends and especially their boy-friends have never found out about. The men showed me the intimate sides of their lives; I sometimes found it hard to believe the things they told me. I had the feeling that they were never this honest with their partners.

I have the feeling that a more open discussion about sex, as well as prostitution in Poland, and I mean a serious discussion, would allow many problems to be solve. There is a lack of honesty in marriages and families as well as the media, which treats prostitution as a story, not as an increasing, widespread problem. Puritanism and hypocrisy creates an atmosphere in which social diseases, such as prostitution, can develop.

Od jutraOd jutra (From tomorrow)
They met at Warsaw Uniwersity in the autumn 1981. They had their plans, their dreams, their hopes and their ideas. They were sitting in a room of academic campus, were drinking cheap wine, smoking cigarettes  and leading their talks about life, literature, love and currant affairs as the "Solidarity" strikes have been going on. They had to decide whether to support the solidarity movement or not. The main hero, Julia, stands at biggest decisions in her life. Coming from a little village, being brought in a family of descendants of nobilities, now peasants, doesn't want to disappoint their parents who had been done  all their best to help her to go to the "better world". Participation in strikes could destroy the plans as she could be expelled from the University. The happiness of the daughter  was the main aim of life of her parents, especially of her mother in her sense of happiness. Mother caused the first and big love of Julia was cut as it was the sort of modern style of misalliance and Julia would never leave the peasants circle. There is the close and difficult relationship between daughter and her mother  shown I the novel. And there is shown the specific situation of the family against the background of the village where they were found "a little bit different".  
Julia is going through the  inner conflict. On one side she supports the Solidarity, identifies with the oppositions but on the other side she doesn't want to lose the chance of her lifetime and of her parents lifetime. Finally she stays in the campus and the same she belongs to minority of those who didn't supported the strikes and she jeopardizes the rejection of the majority. She stayed alone between two the groups  belonging to none.

Matka HłaskiMatka Hłaski
jest ciekawym studium samotności kobiety - rodzicielki, która traci swojego syna. Wielokrotnie w treści listów opisze swoje zranione matczyne uczucia, niespełnione i skaleczone w dniu śmierci Jego. Ze śmiercią [Marka] straciłam wszystko - pisała Maria Hłasko do Zbigniewa Sołuby, redaktora naczelnego "Ekspresu Wieczornego", który w krótkiej notce nazwał Marka zdrajcą. Przez kolejne 18 lat będzie stała na straży dobrego imienia syna; dopóki wystarczy jej sił, osobiście zajmie się każdym przypadkiem fałszowania historii jej ukochanego dziecka. Zmarli nie mogą się bronić.

Kąkolewski bez litościKąkolewski bez litości
Wywiad.

Chwilami można odnieść wrażenie, że literatura faktu, a w szczególności reportaż uważa pana za gatunek podrzędny w stosunku do beletrystyki, a reportażystów za prawie pisarzy.

W pisarstwie nie ma wartościowania. Dygat na przykład mówił, że nie istnieje podział na literaturę faktu i literaturę beletrystyczną, tylko na dobrą i złą. Reportaż jest obciążony konwencją, podobnie jak kryminał, pamiętnik czy science fiction. W przypadku reportażu jest to konieczność opisywania faktów prawdziwych. Nie wolno zawieść zaufania czytelników. Jego odbiór oparty jest na przekonaniu, że dowiaduje się prawdy i tylko prawdy. Konfabulacja, zbitki, to kłamstwo, oszustwo, za którym kryje się lenistwo, brak odwagi lub nieumiejętność zbierania faktów.
