This sweeping, delirious romance begins in the Polish countryside, where Wiktor, a musician on a state-sponsored mission to collect folk songs, discovers a captivating young singer named Zula. Over the next fifteen years, their turbulent relationship will play out in stolen moments between two worlds: the jazz clubs of decadent bohemian Paris, to which he defects, and the corrupt, repressive Communist Bloc, where she remains--universes bridged by their passion for music and for each other. Paweł Pawlikowski's timeless story--inspired by that of his own parents--is a heart-stoppingly grand vision of star-crossed love caught up in the tide of history.
