About the Author:

Christopher J. Koch (1932–2013) was an acclaimed Australian novelist from Hobart, Tasmania. He is best known for The Year of Living Dangerously, which was made into an award-winning film. He was twice awarded the Miles Franklin Award, Australia's top literary honor, for The Doubleman in 1985 and for Highways to a War in 1993.

From Library Journal:

Australian war photographer Mike Langford has just disappeared inside Cambodia as this intriguing novel opens in 1976. That country has been closed to all foreigners since the Khmer Rouge takeover, however, so when Langford doesn't emerge the general presumption is that he has been killed or taken prisoner. When the narrator, a boyhood friend, receives Langford's diary-on-tape, spanning 1965-1975, it sets off a series of reminiscences that offer indelible insights into the mind and heart of a remarkable individual who would dare infiltrate Communist Kampuchea against all odds. Readers will be touched by Langford's experiences in Indonesia (the setting of Koch's 1979 novel, The Year of Living Dangerously), Vietnam, and Cambodia. Highly recommended.
