"An Imperfect Time" is an epic story depicting the fate of people involved in the grim history of the twentieth century. From the pogrom in the village near Pinsk to the reality of the Third Republic, the author leads us along winding roads, reversing the narrative, changing epochs and countries. We follow the fate of several generations of the Brok family, to whom history did not spare anything, neither suffering nor betrayal, nor crime, nor ideological asphyxiation. But you can look at the book a little differently, namely as a record and an attempt to understand the experiences that shaped today's Poland, from the bloody October Revolution through hopeful Solidarity to the futility of the Third Polish Republic. Finally, this book can be read as a kind of morality play showing the struggle of people against the temptations of evil and nothingness, those temptations that were effectively misled by the twentieth century.
