    DescriptionA National Book Award Finalist A few weeks after the planes crashed into the World Trade Center, journalist Megan K. Stack was thrust into Afghanistan and Pakistan, dodging gunmen, prodding warlords for information, and witnessing the changes sweeping the Muslim world. "Every Man in This Village Is a Liar" is her riveting story of what she saw in the combat zones and beyond. She relates her initial wild excitement and slow disillusionment as the cost of violence outweighs the promise of democracy; she records the raw pain of suicide bombings in Israel and Iraq; and, one by one, she marks the deaths and disappearances of those she interviews.

    Review quote
    "A moving and unsettling account of war reporting in the age of terror. . . . Brave and engaged." --"Los Angeles Times " "For readers frustrated with cold and unfeeling news coverage, Megan K. Stack's "Every Man in This Village Is a Liar" will serve as a much-needed antidote. . . . Personal and impassioned. . . . Refreshingly candid and undeniably affecting." --"San Francisco Chronicle " "Above and beyond the 24-hour news chatter, opaque papers, and truncated press reports, stands Megan K. Stack's glittering "Every Man in This Village is a Liar."" --"The Christian Science Monitor " "Without stories like Stack's, war becomes impersonal and easy to gloss over, relegated to page two. These stories--personal and vulnerable--are meaningful, if for no other reason than they force us to look again." --"Minneapolis Star-Tribune " "Journalist Megan Stack sheds the customary pretenses of her profession to show us--with blistering eloquence and her own raw nerves laid bare--war's impact on the non-combatants who bear the brunt of its horrors. You'll be thinking about this book long after you turn the final page." --Jon Krakauer, author of "Where Men Win Glory" ""Every Man in This Village is a Liar" is an electrifying book by an extraordinary foreign correspondent. Megan Stack has braved the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, decoded the secrets of Israel and Egypt. She shows us what war and terror have done to humanity in the 21st century. Read it if you have the courage to care about your country, its allies, and its enemies." --Tim Weiner, author of "Legacy of Ashes" " " "A piercing take on what it's like to be a female correspondent in today's Middle East." --"Vogue " "There have been plenty of books by journalists about the Iraq and Afghan wars, many by reporters 'embedded' with troops. Megan Stack's offering is a different exercise in understanding, and all the better for it. . . . What makes this such a refreshing, u
