Description

When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.

The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of uprooting their lives and moving to another country.

Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

Editorial Reviews

Mallen entertains in this glimpse into the life of a foreign correspondent and his Canadian family’s experience living abroad.

— Publishers Weekly

As an award-winning foreign correspondent, Sean Mallen has told many important stories from around the world. But none is as compelling, heartfelt and humorous as the tale he tells in Falling for London. A master storyteller, he puts you right beside him as he persuades his wife and six year old daughter to give London a chance. It's a wonderful story beautifully told.

— — Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour

Both armchair travelers and fans of humorous memoirs will be charmed.

— Booklist

I’ve been listening to Sean tell stories since we worked together as kid-journalists! He has a special touch. Bravo!

— Wendy Mesley, Host of The Weekly (CBC)
