From the Publisher
A shattering account of war and disillusionment from a
young woman reporter on the front lines of the war on
A few weeks after the planes crashed into the World Trade Center on
9/11, journalist Megan K. Stack, a twenty-five-year-old
national correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, was
thrust into Afghanistan and Pakistan, dodging gunmen and prodding
warlords for information. From there, she traveled to war-ravaged
Iraq and Lebanon and other countries scarred by violence, including
Israel, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen, witnessing the changes that swept
the Muslim world and laboring to tell its stories.
Every Man in This Village Is a Liar is Megan K. Stack's
riveting account of what she saw in the combat zones and beyond.
She relates her initial wild excitement and her slow
disillusionment as the cost of violence outweighs the elusive
promise of freedom and democracy. She reports from under
bombardment in Lebanon; records the raw pain of suicide bombings in
Israel and Iraq; and, one by one, marks the deaths and
disappearances of those she interviews.
Beautiful, savage, and unsettling, Every Man in This Village Is
a Liar is a memoir about the wars of the twenty-first
century that readers will long remember.
