The unvarnished truth about Bali, told within a deeply personal story by an Australian foreign correspondent.
A year after the 2005 Bali bomb atrocities, journalist Deborah Cassrels found herself on an odyssey to the Indonesian resort island grappling with her own existential crisis. Instead, she catapulted into a posting as Bali's first foreign correspondent for The Australian newspaper and the only mainstream reporter based on the island.
Burrowing deep into one of the world's most volatile, magical and brutal nations, she carved out a niche over nearly a decade, dispatching dangerous and exotic yarns suffused with inspiring and eccentric characters.
