Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz worked side-by-side with Pope John Paul II for almost forty years, enjoying unique access to both the public and private man. In A LIFE WITH KAROL, he provides a firsthand glimpse into the Popes life and the critical events of his papacy. Dziwisz was sitting beside the Pope during the assassination attempt in 1981. He recounts the Pope's reaction to 9/11, describing the Popes thoughts and feelings on that day. And his moving description of the Popes haunting memories of World War II uncovers the roots of his intense opposition to Bushs war on Iraq. The two men shared moments of fun and irreverence as well. Dziwisz writes about the times the Pope would slip out of the Vatican wearing a Panama hat to stroll the streets of Rome, and describes the ski and hiking trips the two made. His first-hand account of the Popes last years also reveals that John Paul II considered resigning. These stories and others lend added poignancy to Dziwiszs extraordinary portrayal of the Popes courage and calmness during his final illness.
