Originally published as The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Kim Barker’s much talked about non fiction book – part memoir, part witty tale of self discovery – WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT is out today.

In the book, Kim Barker chronicles her experiences as a journalist after arriving in Kabul in 2002 with nothing more than her passport and a pressing need for a translator. She shares her growing love for the troubled countries, and the dangers and challenges of working in them.

The book has already been attracting rave reviews, and has been made into a movie starring Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton and Alfred Molina that’s coming out in March. You can see the trailer here.

WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT isn’t a crime thriller, but it certainly looks interesting and could be well worth checking out if you’re looking for something in the non fiction section …

WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT is published today by Anchor. You can find in on Amazon here
