Book DescriptionCivil violence mass slaughter, coups, and U.S. intervention: Kathie Klarriech saw all this up close and on a daily basis as a reporter in Haiti. Often risking life and limb, mistaken for a CIA agent, losing a man she loved to an assassin?s bullet ? she tenaciously soldiered on, establishing credentials and contacts, and developed an unsparing eye that led major news organizations such as the New York Times, NBC, CNN, PBS, Time and NPR to count on her expertise throughout Haiti?s turbulent years. This compelling memoir interweaves shattering political events with an intensely personal narrative about the Haitian musician she eventually marries (and has a child with) who turns out to be as riveting and complicated as thepolitical events she covered.
