This was a fantastic read. I have been a long fan of Marks journalistic capabilities and this memoir did not disappoint. I had saved this for our family holiday and quickly became addicted. His early years were covered in quite detail. But the remainder seem seemed quite rushed. In the acknowledgements he said he became ill about 2/3 the way through and took a while to come back to it. It does show somewhat. There were a number of sections where the voice tone was noticeably different. Perhaps some sections were re-read? The less detailed post 1980's memoir raises many additional questions. It's such a shame that he's no longer with us to ask. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Australian journalism and international affairs from an Australian perspective.
