Summary
Shortly after 9/11, Los Angeles Times journalist Megan K. Stack was thrust into Afghanistan and Pakistan, where she dodged gunmen and prodded warlords for information. From there, she traveled to war-ravaged Iraq, Lebanon and other countries scarred by violence. Every Man in This Village is a Liar is Megan K. Stack's electrifying account of what she saw in the combat zones and beyond. She relates her initial wild excitement and her slow disillusionment. She reports from under bombardment in Lebanon; records the raw pain of suicide bombings in Israel and Iraq; and marks the deaths and disappearances of those she has interviewed. Beautiful, savage, and unsettling, this is an unforgettable narrative about the wars of the 21st century - a shattering account from a reporter on the front lines
