In memoriam

One of the prominent Polish writers died in Warsaw on Tuesday, January 23rd 2007. He was 74. One of the people, whose name was recognisable all over the world. He was a traveller, sensitive reporter and a great personality. Among his books are "Ebony", "The Soccer War", "Herodotus" - to name just a few.
