Though he had once been a communist of some repute, Polish philosopher Leszek Kolakowski (1927-2009) lost his enthusiasm for secular utopianism after just one trip to Stalinist Russia. Banned in his own country, he fled to North America in 1968, but not before writing a masterful defense of non-denominational Christianity. In this posthumously published collection of essays, he voices signature wisdom on a variety of subjects, not least the role of skepticism in our dogmatic age. Editor's recommendation. This month's batch of Discover Great New Writers selections spotlights a trio of new releases that earn an extra push for recognition. Remember, tomorrow's bestselling authors need to be helped today!
