9780099490685: The Invisible Writing (Vintage Classics)

Taken together, Arthur Koestler's volumes of autobiography constitute an unrivalled study of twentieth-century man and his dilemma. Arrow in the Blue ended with his joining the Communist Party and The Invisible Writing covers some of the most important experiences in his life.

This book tells of Koestler's travels through Russia and remote parts of Soviet Central Asia and of his life as an exile. It puts in perspective his experiences in Franco's prisons under sentence of death and in concentration camps in Occupied France and ends with his escape in 1940 to England, where he found stability and a new home.

Review:

"A brilliant and deeply moving record of a whole generation as well as of an individual" ( Observer)

"The cumulative effect is overwhelming" ( New Republic)

"He is a journalist of ideas on a very high level - the kind we lack and need in this country - who functions midway between the realms of art and of society, but whose function is indispensable, if thought is to be part of culture" ( Saturday Review)

From the Publisher:

'Perhaps the most remarkable autobiography since the confessions of Rousseau' V. S. Pritchett, New Statesman
