Ryszard Kapuscinski hadn't traveled much before he took a job with the Polish newspaper THE BANNER OF TRUTH. A trip to India--with a Polish translation of Herodotus's works given to him by an editor--changed that. Nicolas Coster reads with a genuine sense of joy that creates all the excitement of a first trip. Coster captures Kapuscinski's depiction of the love of reading that often comes with seeing the world, as well as the tension between the real world and Communist teachings about it. Written from a rare Eastern Bloc perspective, Kapuscinski's book introduces listeners to the joys of reading and learning, and to journalism new and ancient.
