Summary/Abstract: The brilliant story by Adrian Gleń is an invitation to a special journey through the life and work of one of the most famous contemporary Polish writers. Work and life have been shown here as a kind of unity close to the formula of life-writing. The author argues that, with Stasiuk, literature is a record of life and a means for articulating the secrets of existence. He tracks the existential and metaphysical themes enmeshed in this manner of writing, such as the phenomenon of nothingness and death, the fascination with light, the periphery and emptiness, the desire to discover the world through the senses or the apotheosis of existence. Gleń's personal style reconciles literary expertise with his experience as an admirer of Stasiuk's work.
