A Letter from Serafin is a multi-layered archeological dig into the author's past; Poland's past; by way of his great-grandfather Serafin; the mythological past of Medieval paintings; the historical past of Auschwitz through the concentration camps; and the personal pasts that confront him with his own stinging failures and invisibilities made visible.
