An up-and-down journey. Philip Blair accompanied by a most loyal partner, and motivated by the sense that it is the road he is appointed to take forges a career living and working in three distinct professions in six countries of the Middle East. Along the way there are some unexpected blips as well as a few touching occasionally amusing moments. Through this engaging odyssey, the reader learns both about the rich though often disturbed history of a region that has yet to find itself, and of occasional personal experiences of ugly or unsavoury situations. Photographs, enhanced by evocative sketches by Joanna Blair, help the reader stay on board through a slightly stormy voyage.
