Salmon Fishing in the YemenAudiobook CD - 2007
This is the story of Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist--for whom diary notable events include the acquisition of a new electric toothbrush and getting his article on caddis fly larvae published in "Trout and Salmon"--who finds himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the Highlands of the Yemen, a project that will change his life, and the course of British political history forever. With a wickedly wonderful cast of characters--including a visionary Sheikh, a weasely spin doctor, Fred's devilish wife and a few thousand transplanted salmon--"Salmon fishing in the Yemen" is a novel about hypocrisy and bureaucracy, dreams and deniability, and the transforming power of faith and love.
