Initial comments[edit]

A novel is a work of fiction, and is found in the fiction section. This is a a memoir not a novel. Mintguy (T) 08:01, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)

The book is neither fiction nor a novel: it is a memoir and generally regarded as accurate historically. What's your point? Jim_Lockhart 04:49, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Jim, you are responding to a comment made almost three years ago. I would assume that the article used to be titled "The Pianist (novel)" and that guy was saying it should be changed to "The Pianist (memoir)". It is a bit odd that nothing else was written on the talk page for such a long time. --Mathew5000 05:53, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed the date. Should've check the edit log, I guess. Jim_Lockhart 06:37, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Performance Section[edit]

  • I just added it, after seeing the performance myself. I intend to expand and improve upon this section, and any suggestions or constructive criticism is welcome. LiamUK 22:33, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Authorship[edit]

There seems to be a dispute about authorship. For all I can tell the 1946 version had dual authorship, with Jerzy Waldorff doing the writing and following what Szpilman told him. An additional source to that effect would be this book. We currently don't mention that Szpilman was credited as co-author of the 1946 edition; we should add that. Huon (talk) 02:09, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
