My tribute page to Alain de Botton - feedback is much appreaciated

Here we are:

I’m not a designer, but from what I gathered maybe the text is a little dense. And also when looking at the page at 768px width, the text of the right column of the page preferable needs to wrap around the thumbnail with the caption. I couldn’t find the solution without stuffing a lot of css so for now I kept it this way.
