Salmon Fishing in the YemenBook - 2007
A meek, slightly pompous, middle-aged scientist working at London's National Centre for Fisheries Excellence, Dr. Alfred Jones takes on the outlandish--and ill-fated--task of introducing the sport of salmon fishing into the Yemen River at the behest of a mysterious sheikh, in a whimsical novel of administrative bureaucracy, political spin, and government dysfunction.--Publisher.
