The World, The Flesh and Myself by Michael Davidson
In the heyday of the foreign correspondent, from the 1930s through the '50s, Michael Davidson was widely respected for his keen intelligence, winning personality and sympathy for the underdog.
He joined the Berlin communists against Hitler, crossed wartime Morocco in Arab disguise, and opposed the British authorities in Malaya and Cyprus. He also refused to hide his sexuality, and was twice sent to prison.
This celebrated memoir is equally candid about his journalistic and his sexual adventures; these add up to one of the most fascinating autobiographies of its age.
