9781842234211: May You Live in Interesting Times

As a pioneering foreign correspondent, Conor O’Clery has been witness to some of the major world events of the past thirty years, including the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, the Iran–Iraq war, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Clinton years in the White House, the opening up of China, the fall of Indonesia’s Suharto, the liberation of East Timor and global warming in the Arctic.

He was named journalist of the year for his reporting of the end of the Cold War, and journalist and reporter of the year for his vivid eye-witness accounts of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.

In his career with The Irish Times he opened the newspaper’s first Moscow bureau, and went on to establish and run staff offices in Washington, Beijing and New York before returning to live in Dublin.

In May You Live in Interesting Times, O’Clery looks back at events then and now in the overseas countries where he worked, and reveals some of the exciting, dangerous and humourous aspects of life as a journalist on the cutting edge of history.

This is an essential book for anybody interested in the ever-changing, restless chaos of modern global history.
