Belletristik / Romanhafte Biographien
A Lifetime Of News chronicles Robert L. Kroons wartime years in Holland under German occupation and his life as a foreign correspondent, radio and TV journalist that took him from Europe to East Timor and Easter Island and dozens of other countries in between. It looks back on some of the peoplesome famous, some eccentric, some admirable and others less sothat he interviewed in the course of his career, including the Shah of Iran, Peter Ustinov and Frank Sinatra. In his introduction, Bob Kroon explains that this book is the offshoot of ten years of current affairs lectures aboard international cruise ships, where he discovered that specific anecdotes illuminating the people and places he covered in his 50 years as a roving correspondent would keep the audience awake, while analytical ponderings about the state of the world had many passengers nodding off. After these lectures, people often asked him where his book was. So Bob Kroon decided to share some of the more memorable episodes with a larger audience, focusing on the humanity of people who crossed his path. A Lifetime Of News is a selective, personal chronicle of events and people that shaped his life and career.
