When Henry Hemming set out in a pick-up truck called Yasmine to make a portrait of the Middle East, he had no idea what he would find or where he would be able to go - he wasn't even sure how he would earn enough money to stay on the road for a year.Henry Hemming's extraordinary journey takes him from the drug-fuelled ski-slopes of Iran via some of the region's secret beaches, palaces, army barracks, police cells, nightclubs, torture chambers, brothels and artists' studios to a Fourth of July party with American GIs in one of Saddam's former palaces. Everywhere he goes his status as artist gets him into places he would not have been allowed otherwise.As the invasion of Iraq intensifies, he realises that to finish his portrait of the region he must go to Baghdad and find the artistic renaissance there that he has heard about. In so doing he will risk his life. Throughout, he meets young people who share their dreams, doubts and passions, revealing a young and unpredictable Middle East that flies beneath the radar of nightly news bulletins. In these meetings, he also begins to understand what he himself represents, be it British spy, Muslim extremist, jihadi, tramp, bohemian, street-cleaner, Baghdadi, or, from time to time, artist.Misadventure in the Middle East offers a unique, evocative and highly original account of his journey.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, are Mari and her husband grown-up enough to graduate from a Neon to a Mercedes, even if it means having to brush their teeth and hair every day? Elsewhere, Abbie got into a fender bender with a physics professor, and hopes he can help her cover the rental car. Would she have better luck with someone from the philosophy department? Also, Ben almost managed to set his car and vacuum cleaner both on fire on the same day; Kathie’s boyfriend may need to be dumped for suggesting it’s okay to tailgate; and, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Dan’s truck suffered from a “classic case” of Car Talk Bogus Answer Syndrome. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: February 28, 2015] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/150228/rt_cart_150228_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
