Description

A nomadic political analyst realizes he will soon become a grandfather. So he decides to write a digital letter to his grandson-to-be; an intangible legacy, encompassing some lessons he learned from life. The letter can only be "opened" in 2030, when the grandson will be a teenager in a world in turmoil. Beginning with Bob Dylan and touching on techno, Keats, Maserati, Siddhartha, Shakespeare, Blake, Borges, Xuanzang and scores of other legacies, the author shares his experience and wisdom in a deeply cultured and tremendously moving ode to the beauty and richness of past and future worlds. A wonderful gift for any seeker. Pepe Escobar is the roving correspondent/columnist for Asia Times/Hong Kong, and an analyst for RT and Sputnik in Russia, and TomDispatch in the U.S. He has worked as a foreign correspondent since 1985, in North America, Western Europe and across Asia. He is the author of Globalistan; Red Zone Blues; Obama does Globalistan; and Empire of Chaos, all published by Nimble Books. He commutes between Europe and Asia. Follow him on Facebook.
