Yes, the book is a must read for me now. I was impressed that Mr. Szpilman (spelling?) continued to live out the rest of his life in Warsaw. It was touching that he never lost the love of his homeland. Does he reflect on that in the book? Polanski did a wonderful job with how Szpilman remained dignified and elegant under such impossible conditions.

The book is excellent as well. His personality comes through a little differently (it's an autobiography, of course). If you liked the movie, you will enjoy the book.

No, I doubt he will return to the USA. After so long, why risk it? Why would he even want to come?
Probably too busy in Europe anyway to make the trip. About two years I swore I spotted Polanski in NYC at Columbus Circle.

Vegas is taking bets whether he'll show at the Oscars, and if he gets picked up.


They'll probably do a satellite linkup in case he wins.
