Waterstones Says

This unforgettable and highly inspirational memoir from the BBC’s former Chief News Correspondent - who reported from war zones around the world - shines fascinating light both on the important and dangerous work carried out by journalists on the front line and the experience of operating as woman in a male-dominated field.

Kate Adie's story is an unusual one. Raised in post-war Sunderland, where life was 'a sunny experience, full of meat-paste sandwiches and Sunday school', she has reported memorably and courageously from many of the world's trouble spots since she joined the BBC in 1969. The Kindness of Strangers encompasses Adie's reporting from, inter alia, Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Tiananmen Square and, of course, the Gulf War of 1991. It offers a compelling combination of vivid frontline reporting and evocative writing and reveals the extraordinarily demanding life of the woman who is always at the heart of the action.

Although an intensely private person, Kate Adie also divulges what it's like to be a woman in a man's world - an inspiration to many working women.
