In this highly personal memoir, both funny and poignant, Robin Lustig describes a career spanning more than 40 years, from his childhood as the son of German refugees to interviewing some of the world’s most revered and reviled leaders – from Mandela to Karadžić. The award-winning journalist and broadcaster has lived in, worked in and reported from more than 80 countries, including three years as the Observer’s Jerusalem correspondent. He was shot at in Pakistan, was in Berlin the day Germany was re-unified and in Moscow for the final day of the Soviet Union. He talks to David Aaronovitch about his life as a newsman.
