9780140105186: Worlds Apart

This volume collects the best of Gavin Young's journalism. These pieces, by turn elegant, vivid and compassionate, display his acute understanding of the varied worlds in which we live.

'Young is a born raconteur. His writing is full of visual impressions and touches of sensibility. He is driven more by people than by seats of power. But it is difficult to be a compassionate journalist without appearing soppy or sentimental. Young often achieves it. One finishes Worlds Apart exhilarated, moved, angered and enthralled: a tribute to its quality.' Jon Swain, Sunday Times

About the Author:

Gavin Young (1929-2001) was a journalist, writer, and briefly a member of MI6. As a journalist, he was most associated with the Observer, being in the words of Mark Frankland's obituary 'a star foreign correspondent'. When disenchantment with journalism set in he turned to the writing of books. The two most famous ones are Slow Boats to China and its sequel Slow Boats Home . He himself had a particular affection for two later books In Search of Conrad (winner of the Thomas Cook Book Award) and A Wavering Grace. These and Beyond Lion Rock , From Sea to Shining Sea , Return to the Marshes and Worlds Apart are all being reissued in Faber Finds.
