Lost in Transmission by Jonathan Harley
Book DescriptionI grew up with lessons of Australian men as hardy, practical types, strong and stoic. They went off to war for years in jungles and deserts, and never had the need or time to talk about it when they came home. I haven't even fought a war; merely skirted its edges. But if Khurram is right and the soul can only travel at camel's speed, then mine has a lot of catching up to do.' When Jonathan Harley is finally offered his dream job as a foreign correspondent, he is suddenly no longer so sure he wants it. He's just fallen in love, hard. But he can't pass up the chance of becoming the ABC's man in South Asia - and the adventure of a lifetime. LOST IN TRANSMISSION is his funny, moving and thoroughly entertaining account of what it's really like not only to be a foreign correspondent but to be literally a stranger in an even stranger land, struggling to make sense of life in a region that never makes sense. As he finds - and often fumbles - his way around his new beat, from his base in New Delhi, across the wilds of India to Pakistan, Nepal to Afghanistan and beyond to Iraq, Harley shares the misadventures, both hilarious and terrifying. From covering India's endearingly over the top
