Publisher Description

Now a Major Motion Picture titled Whiskey Tango Foxtrot starring Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton.

From tea with warlords in the countryside to parties with drunken foreign correspondents in the “dry” city of Kabul, journalist Kim Barker captures the humor and heartbreak of life in post-9/11 Afghanistan and Pakistan in this profound and darkly comic memoir. As Barker grows from awkward newbie to seasoned reporter, she offers an insider’s account of the region’s “forgotten war” at a time when all eyes were turned to Iraq. Candid, self-deprecating, and laugh-out-loud funny, Barker shares both her affection for the absurdities of these two hapless countries and her fear for their future stability.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (The Taliban Shuffle)

This book was an informed, cheeky, detailed look at the life of an overseas journalist and the war the world couldn't win. The author sucked me in and made me wish I were there beside her throughout her travels, triumphs, adventures, and the pitfalls of life in Afghanistan and Pakistan. An excellent read.
