Memories of the Great & the GoodBook - 1999
Over the course of his distinguished career as a foreign correspondent, which spans more than sixty years, Alistair Cooke has known, interviewed, or reported on literally hundreds of the most influential men and women of the twentieth century. Here he has collected his memories of more than a score of them: they include actors and generals, statesmen and eccentrics, a poet, a jazzman, an intensely scholarly woman and a casually funny one, an architect, a publisher, and several politicians--all of whom, in Cooke's view, have left the world a better or more interesting place.
