He was my first Polish non-fiction writer whom I discovered and have admired till today.

Ryszard Kapu艣ci艅ski = Richard the Cabbage 馃槈 He lived and travelled all around the globe when Poland was under “communistic shoe”. He brought us a scent of great world usually unaccesable for a common Pole. He was my master of short and to-the-point messages.

He was quite prolific. The books from the main photo are all of him. And I read them all (some even several times).
