Summary/Abstract: Review of Jakub Madejski’s book Deformacje biografii [‘Biographies deformed’], (Szczecin 2004). In subsequent sections of his book, the author, as emphasised by the reviewer, juxtaposes the autobiography against certain not-so-obvious contexts: ‘theory’, ‘prison’, and ‘history’, constituting not so much a universal model but rather, three overlapping circles of issues. Consequently, this is not a new theory of biography but a presentation of historical-literary options of biography.
