Life on the Road

Charles Kuralt, Author Putnam $19.95 (253p) ISBN 978-0-399-13488-3
Fans of Kuralt's work on the CBS series Sunday Morning will find this autobiography a charmer as Kuralt reviews his career in print journalism and as a reporter for the electronic media. He recalls his most unusual and memorable programs and interviewees, from the family awaiting a soldier's return from Vietnam to a 92-year-old brickmaker who had been working since his early teens. Kuralt's vivid reminiscences include the anarchic horror of Zaire after independence, the dull sterility of Castro's Cuba, the cooperation of blacks and whites in building a park in Reno, Nev., and a Soviet dentist's message to the Americans who helped him survive a Nazi POW camp. The book is comic and poignant by turns. Photos not seen by PW. BOMC alternate. (Nov.)
