On The Menu: A Foreign Correspondent Writes Fiction

mmm_2-3.gifToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven welcomed journalist and foreign correspondent Paul Harris.

Harris, the author of a new novel, The Secret Keeper, works at his day job as the U.S. correspondent for the British paper The Observer. Although he now reports from the U.S., he has reported from all over the world, including Africa, which led to the inspiration for his book.

He spoke about his book, which is “the story of a war-torn country and a journalist on a mission: first to report to the world about a horrible war and later to uncover the story behind his former lover’s gruesome post-war murder.”
