In Extremis: The Life of War Correspondent Marie Colvin

by Lindsey Hilsum - £9.99  Vintage Books (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784703950 | ISBN 10: 1784703958

The gripping life story of the great war correspondent Marie Colvin told by one of her closest friends.
 
Winner of the James Tait Black Award
 
Marie Colvin was glamorous, hard-drinking, braver than the boys, with a troubled and rackety personal life. She reported from the most dangerous places in the world and her anecdotes about encounters with figures like Colonel Gaddafi and Yasser Arafat were incomparable. She was much admired, and as famous for her wild parties as for the extraordinary lengths to which she went to tell the story.
 
Fellow foreign correspondent Lindsey Hilsum draws on unpublished diaries and interviews with friends, family and colleagues to produce a story of one of the most daring and inspirational women of our times.
