Kate Adie's story is an unusual one. Raised in post-war Sunderland, where l ife was 'a sunny experience, full of meat-paste sandwiches and Sunday schoo l', she has reported memorably and courageously from many of the world's tr ouble spots since she joined the BBC in 1969. THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS enc ompasses Adie's reporting from, inter alia, Northern Ireland, the Middle Ea st, Tiananmen Square and, of course, the Gulf War of 1991. It offers a comp elling combination of vivid frontline reporting and evocative writing and r eveals the extraordinarily demanding life of the woman who is always at the heart of the action. Although an intensely private person, Kate Adie also divulges what it's like to be a woman in a man's world - an inspiration to many working women.
