9781844081400: A Hundred And One Days: A Baghdad Journal

In January 2003 Asne Seierstad entered Baghdad on a ten-day visa. She was to stay for over three months, reporting on the war and its aftermath. A Hundred and One Days is her compelling account of a city under siege, and a fascinating insight into the life of a foreign correspondent. An award-winning writer, Seierstad brilliantly details the frustrations and dangers journalists faced trying to uncover the truth behind the all-pervasive propaganda. She also offers a unique portrait of Baghdad and its people, trying to go about their daily business under the constant threat of attack. Seierstad's passionate and erudite book conveys both the drama and the tragedy of her one hundred and one days in a city at war.

From AudioFile:

Josephine Bailey masterfully presents a reporter's view of life in Baghdad during the first months of 2003. The voice she gives to the author is precisely what one would imagine her to sound like, and her other characterizations are also well done. Author Åsne Seierstad, a journalist based in Norway, reports for various Scandinavian, German, and Dutch media. She is the author of the widely acclaimed BOOKSELLER OF KABUL, about the war in Afghanistan. Presenting voices of Iraqis of all ages and a host of foreign nationals, Bailey delivers a vivid portrait of life in a war zone.
