A court injunction and a heated public debate have heralded the upcoming release of "Kapuscinski Non-fiction", Artur Domoslawski's new biography about Poland's most renowned foreign correspondent.

Kapuscinski , who died in 2007 at the age of 74, covered wars, coups and bloody revolutions in Africa and Latin America as a correspondent for Poland's PAP state news agency from 1959 to 1981. His subsequent books were translated into 30 languages.

But the new biography claims many details in Kapuscinski's books were the stuff of invention.
