Title: A Gent in Overseasia
Author: SIMPSON TONY
Brief description: "In 1973 a twenty eight year old Tony Simpson, attended a conference in Stockholm and then visited what was the Soviet Union. He instantly contracted the incurable travel bug and in the following fifty years has travelled widely in Europe, the United States and Asia. This has involved some strange experiences - having lunch with a member of the Russian KGB in Moscow; attending the trial of Slobodan Milosovic at the Hague; and eating a bear in Slovenia among others. All this and much more is recounted in this, his first travel book, with gentle humour" and sharp observation".
Tony Simpson is the author of some twenty books, mostly of New Zealand's social and cultural history, including the now classic oral account of the Depression in New Zealand The Sugarbag Years.
