Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for ROAD WORK by Mark Bowden.

"Bowden's range is broad. . . . With heartbreaking detail, [these pieces] reveal his most effective reporting tool: empathy."
- Entertainment Weekly (US)

"Mark Bowden is a master of narrative journalism."
- New York Times Book Review

Amazon.com review:

"Anyone who has read Mark Bowden's Black Hawk Down or Killing Pablo knows that he is capable of putting us in the heat of a story in a way few writers can. Road Work gathers the best of his award-winning writing, from his breakout stories for the Philadelphia Inquirer to his influential pieces in the Atlantic on the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Whether traveling to Zambia, where a team of anti-poachers fights to save the black rhino, to Guantnamo Bay to expose the controversial ways America is fighting its war on terror, or to a small town in Rhode Island to penetrate the largest cocaine ring in history, Bowden takes us down rough roads previously off limits and gives us another gripping read."
