Foreign Correspondent Rekindled a Love Affair After 50 Years

From a story on by Steven Slosberg headlined “Foreign correspondent rekindled a long-dormant love affair after 50 years”:

Arthur Higbee, who died on Aug. 9 at age 97 in a nursing home in France, bestowed on me several years ago, when I first met him at his home in Stonington, his 660-page hardcover memoir, “Recollections,” with the admonition that I not simply stow it on my shelf and ignore it.

I haven’t. The memoir is such that it invites the reader to jump in anywhere.
