about

He’s been expelled from Syria on suspicion of terrorism, been dragged from the Hungarian parliament in handcuffs and interviewed the editor-in-chief of al-Jazeera, all during a remarkable two-year journey by wheelchair across Eurasia. Walkley Award-winning journalist Ken Haley’s travels take in 41 countries and in Emails from the Edge he portrays life in the Middle East as it really is, not as the media portray it, and draws an intriguing parallel with his own life. With great humour, and not a hint of sentimentality, he lays bare his darkest times, when he plunged over the precipice into madness, and reveals the wanderlust that led him to the heart of the world’s hot spots.
Few have written so well about their own descent into insanity, a world at war and the beauty of travel.

Ken Haley is one of Australia’s most widely travelled authors. To date he has visited 130 countries, mostly in a wheelchair. He became a paraplegic in 1991, but as far as Ken is concerned the only difference this has made is that he now observes the world from a sitting position. A journalist by profession his experiences include stints on the foreign desk of The Times, Sunday Times and The Observer in London, the Gulf Daily News in Bahrain and the Oman Daily Observer. He has alworked at The Age, Melbourne, and as editor of The Dimboola Banner. He is also the author of Europe@2.4km/h.
