In the heyday of the foreign correspondent, Michael Davidson travelled the globe and campaigned against oppression and injustice. He joined the Berlin communists against Hitler, crossed wartime Morocco in Arab disguise, and opposed the British authoritIes in Malaya and Cyprus. Twice sent to prison for his sexuality. He bravely wrote in 1962 “the life story of a lover of boys”. This autobiography, praised by Arthur Koestler and James Cameron, is a classic memoir of gay life in the first half of the century. “There is still much to marvel at in this autobiography” — New York Native.
