Started with the audiobook, which was well narrated, and for logistics reasons, switched to the printed book. A fascinating, insightful look at a specific period of time prior to World War II when Hughes traveled. The main travels are Russia but there is a portion devoted to his stay in Spain during their Civil War. Wished it had a map. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809015501, Paperback)

In I Wonder as I Wander, Langston Hughes vividly recalls the most dramatic and intimate moments of his life in the turbulent 1930s.

His wanderlust leads him to Cuba, Haiti, Russia, Soviet Central Asia, Japan, Spain (during its Civil War), through dictatorships, wars, revolutions. He meets and brings to life the famous and the humble, from Arthur Koestler to Emma, the Black Mammy of Moscow. It is the continuously amusing, wise revelation of an American writer journeying around the often strange and always exciting world he loves.
