Summary/Abstract: The article “American Disquiets of Jan Józef Szczepański” is an attempt to reconstruct the writer’s judgments and opinions on the changes that swept through the American culture in the late 1960s. The writer, diverging alone from the beaten tourist tracks, observes America; what testifies to it is his direct account of a diarist. When confronted with his subsequent literary texts, fragments of Szczepański’s Dzienniki [Diaries] reveal the often critical attitude of the writer towards the cultural and civilizational wonders of the United States.
