Jerzy Pilch

Jerzy Pilch (Polish pronunciation: [ˈjɛʐɨ ˈpilx]; 10 August 1952 – 29 May 2020) was a Polish novelist, columnist, and journalist. He was born in Wisła, Poland. In 1989, he won the Kościelski Award for his debut novel Wyznania twórcy pokątnej literatury erotycznej ("Confessions of an author of illicit erotic literature"). Pilch's second novel, Spis cudzołożnic ("List of Adulteresses", 1993) was made into a movie in 1995.

Pilch's most successful book so far is his fourth novel Pod Mocnym Aniołem ("The Mighty Angel", 2000), a satirical take on the "drinking novel" genre, which was awarded a Nike Award.

Pilch died on 29 May 2020 in Kielce, Poland of problems caused by Parkinson's disease, aged 67.[1]
