The universal "Thaddeus" - Polish stereotypes in literature

Greetings, commies and fellow deplorables!

Today I would like to share a guest post in Unusual Historicals "Meet My Protagonist" series. I chose Thaddeus Dombrowski, the accident prone, guilt-ridden, sexually exuberant, passive-aggressive husband of my fifteen-year old protagonist Renate in The Gate of Dawn. In American pop culture, Polish men have been subject of many good-natured jokes. Behind every stereotype, there is a bit of anthropological history.
