About the Author

Ryszard Kapuscinski was born in Pinsk, a city now in Belarus on March 4, 1932. He received a master's degree in history from the University of Warsaw. He worked for the Communist journal Sztandar Mlodych, The Flag of Youth. He wrote an article describing the misery and despair of steel workers at a mostrar mais new steel plant outside of Krakow that the party bosses had extolled as a showpiece of proletarian culture. He was fired and forced into hiding. Later his findings were confirmed by a blue-ribbon task force and he was awarded Poland's Golden Cross of Merit. In 1962, PAP, the Polish news agency, appointed him its only correspondent in the third world. His articles about third world conflicts eventually appeared in a series of books including The Emperor: Downfall of an Autocrat, about the lapsed life of Haile Selassie's imperial court; The Soccer War, which dealt with Latin American conflicts; Another Day of Life, about Angola's civil war; Shah of Shahs, about the rise and fall of Iran's last monarch; and Imperium, an account of his travels through Russia and its neighbors after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He also wrote for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and Granta. In 1981, the government of General Wojciech Jaruzelski stripped him of his journalistic credentials after he committed himself to the Solidarity trade union movement. He then began working with underground publishers, contributing poems, and supporting the dissident culture. He died January 23, 2007 at the age of 74. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

«Nadie, lo que se dice nadie, amigo mío, presentía que se acercaba el fin. Aunque tal vez se detectaba que algo flotaba en el ambiente, tal vez algo nos rondara por la cabeza, pero era tan vago, tan confuso que no se podía hablar del presentimiento de algo extraordinario. Y, sin embargo, hacía ya tiempo que el mayordomo deambulaba por palacio apagando un cada vez mayor número de luces, sólo que nuestra vista se fue acostumbrando a ese paulatino apagamiento, y se producía en nosotros un confortable estado de resignación interior ante el hecho de que por lo visto-no visto todo debía ser así: apagado, eclipsado y sumido en la penumbra, en unas sombras tenebrosas y en una nebulosa oscuridad».… (mais)
