Abstract: The purpose of the article is to show how the protagonists of the stories – representatives of ethnic minorities, who find it difficult to adapt to living in the United States and often experience nostalgia – subconsciously wish to return to their ancestor’s homeland. Adultery, entering into close, intimate contact with prostitutes of the same descent as their customers, or forbidden love to a person or people who happen to belong to the same ethnic group – all this becomes an expression of a strong need to return home. Searching for fulfilment in extramarital affairs and deep fascination with Polish women of dubious reputation are also presented in the selected stories by Anthony Bukoski and Stuart Dybek, two contemporary American writers of Polish descent.
