Synopsis

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

Since making his journalistic debut breaking into Piers Morgan's office, Nick reveals how he rattled Donald Rumsfield, slept through 9/11, had tea with President Karzai, struggled into fireproof underwear, and got a free lunch out of the Tamil Tigers. Casting a sideways glance at this influential profession, its glamour, and its sometimes shady practices, Nick also provides bite-sized intelligent insight into the countries he files from.

Reviews

Bryant is a genuine rarity: a Brit who understands America. * Washington Post * Outstanding. * Sydney Morning Herald * Refreshing ... Correspondentland strikes the right balance of observation and insight, skilfully leavened with a helping of humour and a pinch of self-deprecation. * The Australian *
