An American in Oz
An American in Oz
From TV anchor in New York to life and love at the edge of the Wombat State Forest
No one thought Sara James, a 30 Rock habitue 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 come home, in a journey that sees her morph from a big - city anchor and correspondent to a small - town mum 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 New York 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 from her home in the Wombat Forest, reporting from a specially constructed sound booth in the garage, located between her husband's Mustang and the chook shed. Most of all, we see a mother, a wife and a reporter determined to create her own Australian memories, not one on loan from her husband. Warm, uplifting and inspiring, An American in Oz will steal your heart.
