Here's probably the best excerpt from the NYT review: 


"What’s remarkable about 'The Taliban Shuffle' is that its author, Kim Barker ... has written an account of her experiences covering Afghanistan and Pakistan that manages to be hilarious and harrowing, witty and illuminating, all at the same time."
