[…] Grzegorz Moroz’s primary interest […] is in the very blending and interpenetration of the more or less blurred generic conventions, which invariably turn any examination of autobiographical or pseudo-autobiographical text into a complex task where the shadow of verification looms large. If a discerning critic has to maneuver among texts where consistent manipulation of literary forms in order to fulfil the writer’s own goals is
a distinguishing feature, among the texts – as is the case of Waugh’s writing – finely balanced between fictionality and factography, between literariness and impulses towards self-indulgence, then, obviously, the task of this discerning critic is not at all easy. Yet the Author succeeds in defining his own stand with noteworthy precision.
With his well-balanced argumentation, Grzegorz Moroz demonstrates both the scope of his intellectual horizons and his skills in the presentation of literary and cultural phenomena. There are no shortcuts here: what the book contains is proof of reliable and remarkable philological endeavour. […] (fragment from the review by professor Zbigniew Białas)
