Obstpflücker, Soldat, Hafenarbeiter, Hochzeitsfotograf, Seemann, Schriftsteller - das sind die nächsten Stationen seines Lebens. Unter australischen Seeleuten findet er Anschluss an die Gewerkschaftsbewegung, die KP. In Fabriken und im Hafen liest er aus seinem Roman »Stimmen im Sturm«. 1955 kehrt er nach Europa zurück, lebt als Schriftsteller in der DDR. Seine Romane und Reisereportagebände erleben hohe Auflagen - und stoßen doch auch an die Grenzen der Zensur.
Seine Auslandsreportagen sind präzise Zeitzeugnisse, hautnah am Leben: Er sitzt im Gerichtssaal in San Jose, als die Jury am four. Juni 1972 Angela Davis nach spektakulärem Prozess freispricht. 1983, ein Jahr nach dem Massaker von Sabra und Shatila, ist er im Libanon unterwegs. Israel, einst Hoffnungsland für ihn und seine Eltern, fasziniert ihn, und mit wachem Blick erkundet er es. Der Konflikt zwischen Arabern und Juden erschüttert ihn.
Längst als Autor erfolgreich, fährt er noch einmal auf verschiedenen Frachtern zur See, erkundet mit der Entdeckerlust eines Jack London oder Somerset Maugham fremde Ufer, schreibt darüber voller Leuchtkraft und Lebendigkeit. Mit demselben neugierigkritischen Blick durchmisst Walter Kaufmann die Spanne von über acht Jahrzehnten in seinem packenden Lebensreise-Bericht.
