On Not Meeting Konwicki
Posted by David J. James
Original YT playout date: 19 February 2009
This living legend of literature was signing his book right next to my office, and as a literary person I wanted to go along and meet this figurehead letterhead. Unfortunately, all the other budding literati had the same notion, and the crowds of cultural vulturals descended on Wiejska Street in such force that I could not get anywhere near the great man.
I still go to this office and have a rom there, although most of the intervening period I was elsewhere.
