THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A mythical NEWSPAPERMAN who's NAMED CLAUD COCKBURN (pronounced Coburn) and who has been referred to as many stuff (most of the mentioned abusively) through famous personages worldwide for 1 / 4 of a century.

For a few years prior to global struggle II he used to be the diplomatic correspondent of the (London) “Daily Worker.” For much more years he was once a international correspondent of “The occasions” (also of London).

He based and wrote “The Week,” a mimeographed anti-Fascist periodical which he says “was surely the nastiest-looking little bit of paintings that ever dropped onto a breakfast table.” It begun with seven subscribers and in years numbered between its readers lots of the diplomats of Europe, many bankers and senators, Charlie Chaplin, King Edward VIII and the Nizam of Hyderabad.

Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin as soon as indexed him as one of many 269 most threatening Reds alive. within the comparable week, a Czech Communist named Otto Katz was once hanged in Prague after confessing that he were recruited to the reason for anti-Communism by means of Colonel Cockburn of the British Intelligence Service.

Here is what the guy himself says approximately how humorous, how tragic and the way interesting he discovered existence in London, Berlin, manhattan and Washington within the years among global wars. a few of these tales have seemed in “Punch,” yet it is a whole textual content of what the writer has thus far written down approximately himself and his legend. it truly is filled with wit, and irreverence, and remarkable joyfulness. it's a little just like the glass of champagne the writer realized to understand in “the little second which continues to be among the drawback and the catastrophe.”
