Artur Domoslawski on Ryszard Kapuscinski

Friday 21st September 2012 6:30pm - 7pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

From postcolonial Africa to revolutionary Iran, from the military dictatorships of Latin America to Soviet Russia, the Polish journalist and writer Ryszard Kapuscinski was one of the most dauntless and important eyewitness reporters of the twentieth century. In his committed journalism covering the great revolutions of the age, and his resolute anti-colonialism, Kapuscinski created a new genre of creative reporting: one that brought him immense fame in the Western world and to the attention of the CIA.

 

In his major new biography of Ryszard Kapuscinski, Artur Domoslawski shines new light on the personal relationships of this intensely charismatic, highly private man, and the intractable issue at the heart of Kapuscinski's life and work: the question of where journalism ends and literature begins. Close to Kapuscinski, and with unparalleled access to his private papers, Domoslawski, himself an award-winning foreign correspondent, traces his mentor's footsteps through Africa and Latin America, delves into the files and archives that Kapuscinski himself examined, and interviews the people that he talked to in the course of his own investigations. Domoslawski talks about Ryszard Kapuscinski.

Artur Domoslawski writes on international politics for the weekly review Polityka and for the Polish edition of Le Monde diplomatique, and for two decades reported for the Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza. In 2010 he received Poland's prestigious Journalist of the Year Award. A Knight Fellow at Stanford University in 2005-6, he is the author of five books and is currently working on a book about contemporary Latin America.
