Item description for Foreign Devil: Thirty Years of Reporting in the Far East by Richard Hughes...

For 30 years Hughes wrote newspaper stories for The Sunday Times and the Economist from and about Southeast Asia. Followed by readers around the globe, his reports were often harbingers of momentous events to come. In addition Hughes teases the reader with was or wasn't he-a spy, a double-agent and, most important, for whom? This is a rollicking read by a seasoned veteran who keeps his cards close and his enemies closer.

More About Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes (1900-1976) was born in Surrey, England, but his ancestors came from Wales and he considered himself a Welshman. After an early childhood marked by the deaths of two older siblings and his father (his mother then went to work as a magazine journalist), Hughes attended boarding school and, with every expectation of being sent to fight in the First World War, enrolled in the military. Armistice was declared, however, before he could see active service, and Hughes was free to go to Oxford, where he became a star on the university literary scene, with a book of poems in print and a play produced in the West End by the time he graduated in 1922. Hughes s first novel, "A High Wind in Jamaica," came out in 1928 and was a best seller in the United Kingdom and America. In Hazard followed ten years later. Hughes also wrote stories for children and radio plays, but his final major undertaking was the The Human Predicament, an ambitious amalgamation of fact and fiction that would track the German and English branches of a single family into the disaster of the Second World War while offering a dramatic depiction of Hitler s rise to power. The work was planned as a trilogy, but remained incomplete at the time of Hughes s death. The first volume, "The Fox in the Attic," appeared in 1960, to great critical acclaim; volume two, "The Wooden Shepherdess, "was published in 1973. All of Hughes s completed novels are available from NYRB Classics."

Richard Hughes was born in 1937.
