We hear a drumroll, a chorus of trumpets, and then the TIMES foreign affairs columnist reading his pieces about "the biggest single news story in my life." Op ed pieces surrounding the tragedy of September 11 are stitched together with equally lively diary entries. Friedman has a deep, clear voice, which perfectly complements his highly accessible prose. You also know where to add salt. You can hear the glee of a reporter with a big job, as when he quotes this e-mail: "Saudi women need your pen, Mr. Friedman. I read your articles, and they are so powerful and so true." I wouldn't put it that baldly. Nor would I miss this book. B.H.C. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
