Ryszard Kapuściński: A Life reviewed by The Economist
The review touches on one of the key aspects of the book: Kapuściński's disregard for the line between fact and fiction, both in his work and in his personal life. "He was also slippery about his own beliefs, careless with facts, a loyal servant of a totalitarian regime, and cruel to those who loved him," writes The Economist.
The Economist also includes an extended audio interview with the magazine's eastern European correspondent, who praises the biography and analyzes the criticisms, such as embellishing—or inventing—facts, that have plagued Kapuściński's work for years.
