The gripping life story of the great war correspondent Marie Colvin told by one of her closest friends

The gripping life story of the great war correspondent Marie Colvin told by one of her closest friends

SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD
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Fellow foreign correspondent Lindsey Hilsum draws on unpublished diaries and interviews with friends, family and colleagues to produce a story of one of the most daring and inspirational women of our times.

A Sunday Times Book of the Year
'A stunningly good biography' WILLIAM BOYD
