Buying the Night Flight: The Autobiography of a Woman Foreign Correspondent
In Buying the Night Flight Georgie Anne Geyer, one of the first American women to cover wars abroad, tells of her thrilling rise from cub reporter to foreign correspondent as she made her way into the male-dominated world of journalism. Born from thirty years of reporting experience, Geyer transports the reader to Guatemala, Cuba, Egypt, Russia, and Cambodia, recounting the history and politics, adventure and extremism of the times with rare insight, humor, and passion. Told with a brilliance and dead-on honesty, this book vividly captures the triumphs of a determined and talented young reporter.
