We Are Now Beginning Our Descent by James Meek
We Are Now Beginning Our Descent finds British war correspondent Adam Kellas covering the American invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. Freshly divorced, Kellas' life seems as random as the conflicts he covers. He meets an American journalist named Astrid and has a one-night stand with her. They part ways and Kellas decides his next adventure is writing a novel based on his war experiences, and he's convinced an American publisher to advance him a large amount of money for the project. Before signing the contract, though, he gets a desperate call from Astrid and flies off to be with her. Could she become the anchor to his rootless life? James Meek's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the London Times calling it a "beautifully told story."
