A daughter’s reminiscences

vintage-typewriter-keys

“My father (Charles Powers) was a highly respected writer–a Pulitzer finalist more than once–and a foreign correspondent for the Los Angles Times for almost two decades. He was a very handsome lout, and cut a romantic figure. A journalist in the Christopher Hitchens mold; I think they even knew one another in the Middle East. Anyway, his first foreign post was in Nairobi.”

Read the rest.

Powers’ daughter Rachel wrote this reminiscence of her father in East Africa. It was published in Ta-Nehisi Coates’ column in the Atlantic in August 2013. Recommended.
