This is an interesting insight into one the 20th century's clearest and sharpest minds. Between his birth in 1872 and his death almost a century later in 1970, he travelled far and wide, his thoughts were broad and deep, and he consistently met, talked, and wrote with a spectrum of interesting people people: from H G Wells to Einstein. His Nobel Prize in Literature was well deserved, both for his effortless language and his breadth and depth of scholarship. Excellent addition to any book shelf!
