El Salvador, 1982, the height of a terrible civil war. Joan Didion travels from battlefields to body dumps, interviews a puppet president, considers the distinctly Salvadoran meaning of the verb 'to disappear' and trains a merciless eye not only on the terror there but also on the depredations and evasions of US foreign policy. (Part of Granta's Classics of Reportage series.)

"It is quite impossible to deny the artistic brilliance of her reportage. She brings El Salvador to life so that it ends up invading our flesh."
(New York Times)
