A Journey For Our Times: A Memoir
A Journey For Our Times: A Memoir
By Harrison E. Salisbury
Harper, 1983, 546 pp
Purchase

The candid, very personal and entertaining memoirs of an exciting and distinguished journalist's career beginning in Minnesota in the 1920s and focusing, after 1944, on the Soviet Union. Salisbury's fierce independence and contempt for intolerance, whether in Russia or America, are powerful underlying motifs. There are wonderful portraits of great and notorious characters, such as Al Capone, Huey Long, Stalin and Khrushchev.
