Summary
"Pioneer journalist Georgie Anne Geyer has reported on revolutions and coups from Guatemala to Poland for over thirty years - the first American woman to cover world events on such a scale. Her unparalleled courage and keen political insights have made her one of the most respected correspondents in the world today." "In Buying the Night Flight, Geyer tells the exciting story of a ground-breaking career that carried her from a cub reporter's beat in Chicago to an ice cream parlor with Fidel Castro and frequent appearances on national television. She takes the reader behind the scenes of her interviews with Juan Bosch, Regis Debray, King Hussein, Prince Sihanouk, Anwar Sadat, Yasser Arafat, Ayatolloh Khomeini, Lech Walesa, Salvador Allende, and Muammar Qaddafi. At the same time, she tells us of another revolution - the "inner revolution of a whole watershed generation of women"--That shaped her choices, her sacrifices, and her heart as she took the daring path to high adventure in a challenging "man's world."" "This new, updated edition also chronicles Geyer's recent experiences as a respected columnist - including a high-profile and almost surrealistic dispute with well-known Hollywood producers and a perilous foray into the cutthroat world of New York publishing. She also provides a unique perspective on the fall of the Soviet empire, which she witnessed as it developed."--Jacket
