Annotation

In this definitive biography, Artur Domoslawski shines a new light on the personal relationships of this intensely charismatic, deeply private man, examining the intractable issue at the heart of Kapuscinski's life and work: the relationship and tension between journalism and literature. In researching this book, Domoslawski, himself an award-winning foreign correspondent, enjoyed unprecedented access to Kapuscinski's private papers. The result traces his mentor's footsteps through Africa and Latin America, delves into files and archives that Kapuscinski himself examined, and records conversations with the people that he talked to in the course of his own investigations. Ryszard Kapuscinski is a meticulous, riveting portrait of a complex man of intense curiosity living at the heart of dangerous times.
