About this title:

Synopsis: "Bittersweet Bread" is the stirring story of a young Pole's triumph borne out of the Polish dilemma of World War Two. Having fled the communist system, Stanislaw Gotowicz took his hopes, his dreams and his youthful ambition to the melting pot of a displaced person's camp. Amid failed aspirations of a fair-minded and compassionate treatment in that camp, he made a fateful decision - to move from the Old World to the New. The country he chose - Australia - was not unlike himself: young, fresh, and full of growing hope and confidence for future prosperity. But the new world, however keen to assimilate its new citizens, was set in its ways and insular in outlook. "Bittersweet Bread" is a moving account of how Gotowicz not only assimilated into his new culture, but offered it a new and enriching dimension. His story is dramatic and yet humorous; it is triumphant and at times tragic; but, most of all, "Bittersweet Bread" is a jubilant story of the very best that multiculturalism offers any nation. This Polish Australian - and a generation of immigrants like him - had very much shaped and inspired the new post-war Australia. Gotowicz's frank, honest and beautifully written odyssey will inspire both newly liberated Poland and his fellow Australians; but most of all, it will inspire and entertain the general reader.
