Absurdistan: A Bumpy Ride Through Some of the World's Scariest, Weirdest Places

by Eric Campbell - £14.99  Harper Collins (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780732279806 | ISBN 10: 0732279801

Award-winning foreign correspondent Eric Campbell has been stoned by fundamentalists, captured by US Special Forces, arrested in Serbia and threatened with expulsion from China.
 
He's negociated dating rituals in Moscow, shared a house with a charismatic mercenary in Kabul and taken up smoking at gunpoint in Kosovo.
 
In 2003 in Iraq he was injured in a suicide bombing which killed his colleague, camerman Paul Moran.
 
By turns provocative and thoughtful, Absurdistan is a memoir about juggling life, love and fatherhood while reporting from some of the most dysfunctional places on Earth.
