NYSWI: Joseph Lelyveld reads and signs Great Soul (SUNY)

Joseph Lelyveld, journalist and nonfiction author, worked at the New York Times
from 1962 through 2001 serving as foreign correspondent in the Congo,
South Africa, India and Pakistan, then as London bureau chief, foreign
editor, managing editor, and finally executive editor from 1994 – 2001.
Lelyveld’s most recent book is Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India. The book reveals Gandhi’s “less palatable tendencies” as well as his vision for nonviolent revolution. Publishers Weekly described Great Soul
as “A stirring evenhanded account that relates the failure of Gandhi’s
politics of saintliness while attesting to its enduring power.” Lelyveld
won the Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for his nonfiction book Move Your Shadow: South Africa Black and White based on his reporting tours in that country.
