Witness by Robert Rient, translated by Frank Garreet

Inside Jehovah's Witnesses Inside Catholic Poland Inside A Gay Life

Award-winning journalist Robert Rient chronicles his childhood inside Poland's hermetic Jehovah’s Witness community and describes how he eventually comes to terms with his life and identity after leaving his religion.

"Robert Rient has written a book that needs many readers, a book about the transformation from one life into another. How to give up one’s family, one’s own environment, the values instilled in childhood and not go crazy? The protagonist/author knows how, but he has paid a high price for his decision. It’s possible to change your life! And that’s why I read Witness ravenously."

– Mariusz Szczygieł, the author of the award-winning Gottland
