Product description


'Reporting from the world's plague-spots, Mueller asks the questions the rest of us were far too busy being clever to think of. Think Douglas Adams meets Holidays in Hell.' Michael Bywater 'This book is full of the sort of elemental survival humour and remove-your-own-appendix directions crucial for travel in these absurdist times.' Jonathan Kaplan 'Andrew Mueller is a gung-ho Candide with a taste for places that it is wiser to avoid. IWSFH is graphic, comic, bemused and properly contemptuous of faith and ideology.' Jonathan Meades Mueller's prose is as spectacular as a Taliban attack on LollapaloozaA" - P.J. O'Rourke

Product Description

Andrew Mueller doesn't consider himself a "proper" journalist, and yet he's travelled from Afghanistan to Abkhazia, from Belfast to Belgrade and from Tirana to Tripoli in search of a good story. I Wouldn't Start From Here is his random history of the 21st century so far, and all its attendant absurdities, intermittent horrors and occasional glimmers of hope. It features gunfights, car chases and gaol cells, any number of exotic locations, and a cast which includes revolutionaries, rock stars, politicians, hitmen, warmongers and peacemakers.

Whether ducking for cover in Gaza, running roadblocks in Iraq, attempting to have fun in Luxembourg, or trying to buy Colonel Gadaffi T-shirts in Tripoli, Mueller is a man in search of an answer to perhaps the crucial question of our time: "What is it with these people?"


"Mueller's prose is as spectacular as a Taliban attack on Lollapalooza" PJ O'Rourke
