Tomasz Tyczyński spoke with Andrzej Bart about literature and literary life, memory and history, as well as free market culture. This meeting was a bit sentimental because, as Andrzej Bart reminded at the beginning, Tomasz Tyczyński was the author of the first review "Rien ne va plus", which also was the first review of his authorship. To escape the sentimantality, interlocutors reminded how much " Gazeta Wyborcza" cost then and how much the honorarium amount
