Description: Kim Barker is not your typical foreign correspondent. Raised in Montana, at thirty she had barely been overseas, spoke only English, and knew little about Islam and even less about Osama Bin Laden. But none of that would stop her from heading to Afghanistan and Pakistan to cover the fallout from 9/11. When she arrives, Kim makes all sorts of mistakes -- from eating toxic sushi, to forgetting her money on her first trip to Kabul -- but soon she grows into a wisecracking, seasoned reporter, with grave concerns about the ability of US might to win hearts and minds in the region. As she moves between conflict zones, Kim offers a close-up account of the war, and of the people at its heart, finding humour and humanity amid the rubble and the heartbreak. Whiskey Tango Foxtrotcaptures the absurdity and tragedy of our modern wars, and gives us an unlikely but unforgettable heroine for our times.
