schema:description"The living and dead presence of Fergal Keane's alcoholic father haunts this memoir. His influence is felt throughout the award-winning journalist's early days as a reporter on the Irish Press to his dream job as the BBC Southern Africa correspondent. The first part of Keane's memoir buoys the reader with hilarious accounts of his newspaper apprenticeship: pranks played on new recruits and arguments with deaf copytakers. The serious stuff begins in Africa, reporting first for the Irish broadcaster RTE. He sees the killing of innocents and is determined to make sure their stories are told. Then the dream BBC job takes him on the most harrowing journey of his life, to report the genocide in Rwanda. Here, he becomes addicted to booze and war, to surviving, again and again. This profoundly honest memoir feels like a confession of the guilt he carries about his relationship with his father and for the dead and injured he has filmed and then left."@en
