An affecting personal memoir full of poignancy and humor, this is a true tale of NBC correspondent Sara James's trials and tribulations in the Land of Oz

No one thought Sara James, a seasoned NBC TV correspondent and Manhattanite through and through, would move to Australia after a long and successful fast-track career reporting from around the globe. But move she did, when her Australian husband Andrew wanted to go home, in a journey that sees her morph from a big-city anchor to a small-town mom living an Australian country life. It is an odyssey filled with drama and adventure, both personal and professional, intentional and accidental. We see Australia through a New Yorker's eyes, and follow Sara's adventures as she faces head-on the challenges of everyday life in a new country with two children, one of whom has special needs. We laugh with her as she drives on the other side of the road, grapples with the Australian vernacular and its penchant for understatement, and ponders the prevalence of local wildlife that could kill. We cheer for her when she sets up the NBC Australasian bureau at her home in the Wombat Forest, reporting from a specially constructed sound booth in the garage, located between her husband's Mustang and the shed. Most of all, we see a mother, a wife, and a reporter determined to create a new home for her family. Warm, uplifting, and inspiring,An American in Oz will steal your heart.
