Artur Domosławski (non-fiction, journalist; Poland) has among his titles Gorączka latynoamerykańska [Latin American Fever]Śmierć w Amazonii [Death in the Amazonas], the essay collection Wykluczeni [The Outcasts] and two biographies: Ryszard Kapuściński: A Life, for which he was voted “Journalist of the Year” for 2010.
