Przybyszewski, interesting fellow

Stanisław Przybyszewski to be exact. Writer, lived from 1868 to 1927. Great writer, but also severe alcoholic and compulsive liar. According to Wiki introduced his daughter to morphine while she was a college student, and she became hooked for the rest of her life. I wish more of his stuff was translated into English, despite his personal life, which also included a lot of interesting bohemian living and wasn't just self destructive.
