Adventures in Correspondentland is part memoir, part travelogue, and part polemic. More than anything else however it is the inside story of the dangers, delights and diversions of "Correspondentland".

Happy Meals at Guantanamo is part memoir, part travelogue, and part polemic. More than anything else however it is the inside story of the dangers, delights and diversions of "Correspondentland". How did Bill Clinton react when, in front of a ballroom full of over 2,000 people, he had to present the award for 'Journalist of the Year' to the reporter who discovered the existence of Monica Lewinsky's little blue dress? And what did Hillary Clinton make of it all? Why did the BBC report on the night that Princess Diana was killed in a Paris underpass that she was walking around at the scene of the crash, and then continue to broadcast that she was alive even when it knew she was dead? How did Bono help save the Northern Ireland peace process? Why is the real West Wing nothing like the television series? Why did the author's hair catch alight as the Indian election reach its soaring climax? How did he end up sleeping through the biggest story of his life?
