Foreign Correspondent Summary


Foreign Correspondent: Travels in Paris in the Sixties by Peter Lennon

Disenchanted with his native Ireland Peter Lennon, a novice journalist in the late 1950s, borrowed thirty pounds and headed for Paris to take his chances as a foreign correspondent. The book is his travelogue in time through Paris. It is a personal, worldly and witty account of the events and people - celebrated and obscure - who crossed his path during that most momentous and exciting decade in the city's history. Salvador Dali and Jacques Tati, brutal policemen and corrupt waiters. Algerian terrorists and eccentric landladies - all are subject to Lennon's scrutiny, but perhaps his greatest insights are into Samuel Beckett, whose friendship with Lennon allowed the young journalist unique glimpses into Beckett's character and outlook.
