RARA-AVIS: King Kong's step-brother, the crime writer

A Washington Post book review of a new bio about KING KONG director Merian C. Cooper mentions an illegitimate son...

<< But Cooper, for all his courage as a soldier and moviemaker, could never bring himself to buck convention by acknowledging his illegitimate son, who grew up to be the eminent Polish writer Maciej Slomczynski, author of a series of crime novels and translator of Joyce's Ulysses into Polish.

Anyone know anything about this writer or his work?

By the way, the book review is here:
