Karol Wojtylas early life experiences were of intense love and intense loss: born in Poland in 1920, he was eight when his mother died, twele when his older brother died of scarlet fever in the hospital where he worked as a doctor, and twenty whenMoreKarol Wojtylas early life experiences were of intense love and intense loss: born in Poland in 1920, he was eight when his mother died, twele when his older brother died of scarlet fever in the hospital where he worked as a doctor, and twenty when his severe but loving father died during the Nazi occupation.

God and the Catholic Church were from the beginning his consolation and strength. What is new and unusual about this timely biography is the attention the author gives to the inner man. Garry OConnor has not only investigated Karol Wojtylas life before he became pope, his love of football, skiing and the outdoor life, his committment to acting, his friendships with men and with women, his experiences under German then Soviet occupation, his nationalism, his early years as a priest, but has also subtly analysed the popes own poems, plays and philosophical works as clues to what makes him tick.

The result is a living portrait, vivid and accessible, based on scrupulous research that dramatically tracks the personal tragedies, including the assassination attempt in 1981, and the great public confrontations on the world stage.
