あらすじ・解説

Declan Walsh is one of the New York Times's most distinguished international correspondents. His electrifying portrait of Pakistan over a tumultuous decade captures the sweep of this strange, wondrous, and benighted country through the dramatic lives of nine fascinating individuals. 

On assignment as the country careened between crises, Walsh traveled from the raucous port of Karachi to the salons of Lahore, and from Baluchistan to the mountains of Waziristan. He met a diverse cast of extraordinary Pakistanis - a chieftain readying for war at his desert fort, a retired spy skulking through the borderlands, and a crusading lawyer risking death for her beliefs, among others. Through these "nine lives" he describes a country on the brink - a place of creeping extremism and political chaos, but also personal bravery and dogged idealism that defy easy stereotypes. 

Unbeknownst to Walsh, however, an intelligence agent was tracking him. Written in the aftermath of Walsh's abrupt deportation, The Nine Lives of Pakistan concludes with an astonishing encounter with that agent, and his revelations about Pakistan's powerful security state. Intimate and complex, attuned to the centrifugal forces of history, identity, and faith, The Nine Lives of Pakistan offers an unflinching account of life in a precarious, vital country.

good book, strange narration

Mr. Walsh's reporting and writing are excellent, but I'm thoroughly confused by the accent Mr. Clark is using here. I even checked to see if he was Irish or something, but no-- just donning a faux South Asian brogue it seems. I echo the other reviews and encourage you to read rather than listen.

Terrible

Great book and great stories about Pakistan. The audio narration was terrible. Read the book instead.

tour de force

Reportorial rather than academic, and better for it, connecting so many dots. Well written and fast-moving. Candid, critical and insighful, but also communicates Walsh's affection for the country and its complex story.
