9780704371996: Dream On: A Demi-memoir

For 30 years David Smith reported from across our world. He was there in the final days of the last of Europe's fascist dictators. He was there when two Popes died in the space of just 33 days. He was there as the sun set on the British Empire in Africa. He saw war in the Middle East, and the collapse of the Soviet Union in Moscow. In Washington, he came to know every president from Bush Sr. to Barack Obama, and witnessed everything in between - the wars, the impeachment, the rise of the American Superpower, and the crash that followed. Then he decided to seek a new challenge, and write another chapter in a remarkable life. He embarked on the eternal quest of making a great wine. This demi-memoir from David Smith, one of Britain's most experienced Foreign Correspondents, is a book about hope, risk, love, taking chances and seeking new frontiers.

About the Author:

David Smith has been a journalist for thirty years. His dispatches for ITN and Channel Four News made him one of Britain's best known correspondents and he has reported on many of the world's major political, economic and humanitarian crises at the end of the Twentieth Century. He lives with his wife Sonia in Washington DC and Argentina.

Review:

David Smith's latest book will inspire undisguised envy among his former colleagues. Not only are we reminded of his distinguished career as a Foreign Correspondent but then he represents the United Nations Secretary-General and fulfils the dream of a large slice of humanity - of owning a vineyard and a house in Argentina where his wife was born. To top it all, Smith is a brilliant writer.A" Sir Trevor McDonald OBE
