By Ryszard Kapuscinski

Años cincuenta: mientras recorre l. a. Polonia profunda, un Kapuscinski aprendiz de reportero vive obsesionado con cruzar los angeles frontera. No viaja a Checoslovaquia, pero, a cambio, los angeles redacción del diario en el que trabaja lo envía a... l. a. India.

El flamante corresponsal parte con un sólo libro, los angeles Historia de Heródoto, que resultará decisivo para los angeles formación (profesional y own) del futuro gran autor. Viajes con Heródoto se revela como un libro de difícil clasificación. ¿Es un reportaje? A ratos. ¿Un estudio etnográfico-antropológico? En parte sí. ¿Un libro de viajes? También lo es. ¿Un homenaje al Heródoto protorreportero y a l. a. calidad de su prosa? Desde luego.Y todo plasmado en magníficas historias no ficticias en las que los soldados de Salamina conviven con un niño sin zapatos en l. a. Varsovia de 1942, Jerjes con Dostoievski, Creso con Louis Armstrong. Y el maestro Heródoto con su discípulo Kapuscinski, el mejor reportero de nuestro tiempo y un grandísimo escritor.
