    reacts to the media during a press conference in Duesseldorf, Germany. “The Lost Soul,” a unique art
    book with text by Nobel-winning Polish author Olga Tokarczuk about a man who loses his soul in the daily
    rush, hits bookstores in the United States this week. In her first visual collaboration, Tokarczuk had a
    compact, pensive text merged with nostalgic drawings by a Polish illustrator. She says that produced a
    surprisingly new, amplified value that can be read on very many levels by children and adults alike.
    First published in Poland in 2017, the hardcover book originated from a private ceremony text intended
    for one person. (AP Photo/Martin Meissner, File)
