9780025650206: Arrow in the Blue

The first volume of his autobiography covers the first 26 years of Koestler’s life, ending with his joining the Communist Party in 1931. Written with zest, joie de vivre and frankness, it is a fascinating self-portrait of a remarkable young man at the heart of the events that shaped the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Arthur Koestler was born in Budapest in 1905. He attended the university of Vienna before working as a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, Berlin and Paris. For six years he was an active member of the Communist Party, and was captured by Franco in the Spanish Civil War. In 1940 he came to England. He wrote The Gladiators in Hungarian, Darkness at Noon in German, and Arrival and Departure in English. He set up the Arthur Koestler Award (now the Koestler Trust) which awards prizes for creative achievements to prisoners, detainees and patients in special hospitals. He died in 1983 by suicide, having frequently expressed a belief in the right to euthanasia.
