This wonderfully entertaining journey takes us from Alistair Horne’s childhood as a wartime evacuee in America to his career as a highly successful historian and biographer, via a stint as a foreign correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. We travel with him from Germany to America, from Canada to France, from Latin America to the Middle East.

A consummate biographer, the pages of Horne’s ‘Literary Vagabondage’ abound with vivid character sketches of the friends and foes that have shaped his life.
