Andrew Mueller is Australian by birth, a Londoner by choice, a wanderer by nature, and a journalist by profession. Unable to decide between being a rock critic, travel writer, or foreign correspondent, he hit upon the novel, if time-consuming, solution of trying to be all three at once. In "Rock and Hard Places," published originally in the U.K. in 1999, now re-envisioned and updated and available for the first time in the United States, he travels to Lebanon with the Prodigy, comes to America with Radiohead, and goes all over the place with U2. He ventures to Bosnia Herzegovina with an aid convoy in the middle of the war, sees Def Leppard play in a cave in Morocco, and attempts to ask the Taliban not only what they think they're up to, but who they fancy for the World Cup. He flings himself head first down the Cresta Run, sits in Stalin's armchair, chases ambulances through Moscow, chases some kind of lost tribe in India, wakes up at least once in a park in Reykjavik, and strongly advises avoiding the seafood salad in Sapporo Airport. He's funny. Occasionally he makes a point. --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。


Praise for "I Wouldn't Start from Here" "The best foreign correspondent of his generation." --P.J. O'Rourke "I am regularly lost. I ask people all the time for directions. They send me to places I never could have imagined . . . I usually want to enter these places when everyone else is queuing up to leave, oftentimes there's just one person in front of me, oftentimes it's Andrew Mueller . . . at the desk in the airport, or in the customs hall at the same counter as me, filling out a similar form. His face has the same expression every time . . . it's a very familiar expression: comic disbelief. He can't believe it's happened to him again . . . he thinks it's the poor directions, the road maps or the unkind stranger who pointed him here. And where is here?'s not that he likes to be lost, it's just that he likes the company of the lost. Be very careful reading this book." --Bono "A 21st-century original; a fresh, irreverent, wry and jovial jaunt of a guidebook around our violent and baffling modern world." "--The Guardian" "A gung-ho Candide with a taste for places it is wiser to avoid. . . the reports collected in "I Wouldn't Start From Here" are graphic, comic, bemused and properly contemptuous of faith and ideology." --Jonathan Meades, "Books of the Year," "Evening Standard" "An utterly "sui generis" report from the world's plague-spots." --Michael Bywater, "Books of the Year," "New Statesman" "A tour-de-force of hilarious, harrowing and ultimately enlightening reportage that will remind readers of the work of P.J. O'Rourke, Jon Ronson and David Foster Wallace." "--The Washington Times" "His sardonic, self-deprecating perspective makes for unstuffy company." "--The Los Angeles Times" "Peppered with trenchant observations that reflect a nimble, cut-to-the-chase practicality, Mueller's interviews with everyone from terrorist warlords to international peacemakers are refreshingly irreverent yet astu --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。

5つ星のうち 5.0 Fantastic 2010/12/9
投稿者 I. Coburn - (
I wanted to give the book a 5 star review (a) because it deserves it, and (b) to offset one of the uninformed reviews. The book clearly states it's a collection of his printed works stories. Yes a rewiew below knocks it for not being a novel, and the stories not tieing together. I don't know what in the product description lead that reviewer to believe it was a novel, but whatever. It's a great book. His other book "I Wouldn't Start From Here" is even better, and has updates to some of the stories in this book. I'd recommend reading both of them. Thanks.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Just fantastic 2011/5/29
投稿者 Cameron Rogers - (
This is an utterly fantastic collection of articles - 20 years worth - of one self-described hack's experiences of touring warzones with rock bands. It's dry, it witty, it's hilarious. I love this guy's style, and for some reason the fact that he was born and raised in Wagga Wagga only endears him to me more. He's smart, he's savvy and the modern introductions to all the articles frame them all wonderfully. A very, very likeable, lovable book and one I'll be keeping and rereading. Mueller's brilliant

5つ星のうち 2.0 More a Collection of Short Stories Than A Novel 2009/5/14
投稿者 Paul A. Kirwan - (
Andrew Mueller, Australian journalist covers everything from rock shows by U2 and The Cure, interviewing a young Green Day, Tobogganning in the French Alps, coming face-to-face with the Taliban and witnessing the unrest in the Balkans in the early 1990's to name but a few. Here he shares his adventures with each tale a short story in itself with nothing to connect them. The writing is good and humorous and the author rather likeable. The problem with this book is that I found some parts interesting and others dull and uneventful. The spectrum covered is rather wide and lacks consistency. On the plus side, you can pick it up at a whim, choose a chapter and not worry about the previous one as it has no bearing on the one that you are reading. It's not a bad book but not a particularly good one either.
