The inside story of the dangers, delights and diversions of life as a foreign correspondent.As a foreign correspondent for the BBC, Nick Bryant has reported from the wilds of Afghanistan, Pakistan, London, Washington and, for the past five years, Australia. Adventures in Correspondentland - his account of these experiences - is part memoir, part travelogue and part polemic. More than anything, however, it is the inside story of the dangers and delights of seeing the world through this unique, sometimes privileged and often strange perspective. How did Bill Clinton react when, in front of a ballroom of over 2000 people, he had to present the award for 'Journalist of the Year' to the reporter who had discovered the existence of Monica Lewinsky's little blue dress? Why did the media report on the night that Princess Diana was killed in a Paris underpass that she was alive when correspondents knew she was dead? How did Bono help save the Northern Ireland peace process? What were international journalists really saying about Prime Minister Rudd? In Adventures in Correspondentland, Nick Bryant takes us around the world and back home to Australia, where he has covered events such as the death of Steve Irwin, the national apology to indigenous Australians and the 2011 Queensland floods. In being an Englishman abroad, he gives us a fresh, funny and revealing insight into how the world sees Australia at the start of the twenty-first century.
