The Foreign Desk is a tale about old-time bumbling journalist Henry Henderson, who is notorious for his ability to sprinkle some facts among his stories. Sent by the newspaper’s proprietor to mountainous Spain, he’s on the quest for a weather-altering machine.
In this pacey comic adventure, will Henderson get to the bottom of things? Or will his love of wine and truffles get him into a pickle?
★★★★ – I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, which recalls the heady days of foreign newspaper correspondents as detailed in memoirs by Martha Gellhorn, George Smalley, Georgie Anne Geyer and, most famously, Ernest Hemingway – Amazon.com reviewer
