AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sky is a first-person, narrative non-fiction account of the period the author spent living as a 'dependant spouse' in Baghdad during the final year of the Saddam Hussein regime, and later as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's correspondent in post-war Iraq. It's an account of terror, ambition, and betrayal in Iraq, and how she became the main character in a story she never wanted, or expected, to find. The book looks at the challenges and adjustments she had to make when she decided to abandoned her career, albeit temporarily, in order to support her husband in his new job with the United Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF. It also focuses on the friendships forged with ordinary Iraqis, despite the enormous hurdles of almost constant government surveillance and the overwhelming atmosphere of fear and suspicion under Saddam Hussein.'
