Beetpulp transports the reader back to the 1980s to offer them a sentimental tour around Gostyn, a little town in South West Poland. It tells a non-linear story of the author’s childhood and early adolescence set against the backdrop of the final ten years of socialism.
Lukasz Konieczny was born in the town of Gostyn, Poland, in 1974. He has tried his hand at various careers, working as an actor in an open-air theatre, journalist, gig organiser, beer sales representative, and, above all, a bartender. Beetpulp, his literary debut, is a collection of snapshot stories that he first published in Polish in 2016. A year later he followed on with a publication of a mini-novel Marcel. Lukasz is a great fan of punk and ska.
