In Extremis: The Life and Death of the War Correspondent Marie Colvin - Lindsey Hilsum

Hilsum's biography of Marie Colvin, the reporter who was killed in 2012, is a well written, rose colored glasses off type of biography. Drawing on interviews as well as Colvin's diary entries, Hilsum presents a complicated portrait of a woman. It is refreshing to read a book about a woman who seems so on point and is just as problematic as the rest of us.

Considering recent attacks on the press coming from politicians, it is important to read this book.
