Summary/Abstract: The author of the article poses a curious question before the literature of the second independence emigration — he asks about the world unpresented in this writing. He refers to the book by Julian Kornhauser and Adam Zagajewski, which gained fame in the early 1970s. In this text, the author enumerates specific “white spaces,” the aspects of American reality not presented in the literature of Polish emigrant writers. He offers a thesis that it was not always the propaganda fight in the ideologically divided world that was the reason why the writers failed to notice and observe particular aspects of life in the USA.
