Anna Blundy has worked in the news media since leaving Oxford in 1992, from doing the photocopying at ABC news in Moscow to being the Moscow bureau chief for the Times. She has published two books, EVERY TIME WE SAY GOODBYE, a memoir of her father, a war correspondent who was killed by a sniper in El Salvador in 1989, and ONLY MY DREAMS, a novel set in England and Russia. She lives in Italy with her husband, Horatio, and children Lev and Hope. Her proudest achievement is having been a blues singer in a Moscow band in the early 1990s and she wishes she was more like her heroine, Faith Zanetti.
This is quite simply terrific. It is the first in a planned sequence of novels featuring the war correspondent Faith Zannetti and it starts with her being posted to Israel. Faith is a great creation the plot is fast and furious. Blundy wrote of her fatherâ€™s death in El Salvador in Every Time we say Goodbye and her background shines through this.
