Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I first heard Mr. Kapuscinski interviewed some years ago on NPR-- concerning his then new release "The Soccer Wars". I purchased a copy and was not disappointed. I have been a fan ever since. Naturally, when "A Life" came out, I looked forward to learning more about this incredible writer. I have not been disappointed. Mr. Kapuscinski was a complex man, living under complex circumstances. He surmounted many difficulties to become what I consider to have been one of the most remarkable, and insightful, political writers of our time. "A Life" succeeds in detailing how Mr. Kapuscinski coped with his complex circumstances. "A Life" does, on occasion, seem a bit hard on Mr. Kapuscinski for various small 'liberties' he may have taken in some of his reportage; but, on balance, seems to present a fair overview of this writer's life. Read it and judge for yourself.
