Storyteller

Front Cover
HarperCollins Australia, Mar 1, 2014 - Biography & Autobiography - 304 pages
A foreign correspondent's memoir like no other ... Zoe Daniel is the ABC's fifteenth South East Asia Correspondent, and one of only a handful of women to combine one of the most dangerous jobs in the world with one of the most demanding - motherhood.From the political unrest in Bangkok and the bittersweet story of conjoined twins in India, to a tragic plane crash in Laos and the destruction of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Storyteller is a frank and brave memoir, as much about the events that capture our attention as it is about a personal story of the universal juggle of work, ambition and family amid the unpredictability of life and the predictability of the 24/7 media cycle. Storyteller is a timely reminder of the bravery and audacity of the men and women who bring us the news - the journalists, the local 'fixers', the cameramen - but above all it is a tribute to ordinary people who find themselves eyewitnesses to the extraordinary.

It must be difficult enough for a man visiting the various troublespots, but as a woman Zoe Daniel would have to endure the strong gender bias against a woman, particularly a white blonde woman in Southeast Asia. She displays great determination, courage as well as appreciating the vital role in getting the messages out.
