Synopsis

Confessions from Correspondentland The Dangers and Delights of Life as a Foreign Correspondent by Nick Bryant

In this irreverent and witty book BBC foreign correspondent Nick Bryant casts a scathingly honest eye on this hugely influential profession, from the heart of Washington, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, Pakistan, India, and Australia - revealing the fascinating and sometimes shocking behaviour of media hounds desperate for a scoop. Since making his journalistic debut breaking into Piers Morgan's office, Nick reveals how he rattled Donald Rumsfield, slept through 9/11, and got a free lunch out of the Tamil Tigers. Providing a compelling insider perspective on the international events and people that have defined our times, this is the perfect holiday read.
