Great memoire from an interesting character. Different times and different places. Well worth the read if you are interested in modern world history or journalism.

This is a brisk and enlightening memoir from a buccaneering foreign correspondent. Behr was a fan of Evelyn Waugh's Scoop and he tries to bring some of the flavour of that great novel to his biography. He is amusing, and he tells some fine anecdotes. He has pertinent things to say about politicians and the pursuit of 'facts'. There's some fascinating background to the problems the French faced in Algeria and the Americans endured in Vietnam. I got through it quickly, and enjoyed it, without seeing it as a classic.

I must admit - I first bought it for the title. Irresistible. Such a talking point!
But, it's better than that. Brilliant read and excellent source if information about the post-WWII era.
Highly recommended.
