In February 2012, Marie Colvin crossed into Syria on the back of a motorcycle. A veteran war correspondent known for her fearlessness, outspokenness, and signature eye patch, she was defying a government decree preventing journalists from entering the country. Accompanied by photographer Paul Conroy, she was determined to report on the Syrian civil war, adding to a long list of conflicts she had covered, including those in Egypt, Chechnya, Kosovo, and Libya. She had witnessed grenade attacks, saved more than one thousand women and children in an East Timor war zone when she refused to stop reporting until they were evacuated, and even interviewed Muammar Qaddafi. But she had no idea that the story she was looking for in Syria would be her last, culminating in the explosion of an improvised device that sent shock waves across the world. In A Private War, Marie Brenner brilliantly chronicles the last days and hours of Colvin’s life, moment by moment, to share the story of a remarkable life lived on the front lines. This collection also includes Brenner’s classic encounters with Donald Trump, Roy Cohn, Malala Yousafzai, Richard Jewell, and others.

    Marie Brenner is a smart dynamic woman. Last month, my sister and I went to hear her speak at an intimate setting, Half King’s Pub in NYC, which is part owned by Sebastian Unger (a la The Perfect Storm et al) and which has Monday lectures and readings by contemporary journalists and authors. I really enjoyed her presentation and found her articulate and likable, mesmerizing. This book, a collection of Brenner’s articles over the years published in Vanity Fair, is excellent.

The piece on Marie Colvin should be followed up by Lindsey Hilsum’s book on Colvin and the two pieces on Trump are priceless. I had read Malala’s memoirs and I found the piece on Wigand, the tobacco industry whistleblower particularly fascinating. Off to see the movie, A Private War!

    A Private War is about war correspondent Marie Colvin. It is the basis for the 2018 film A Private War. I recently watched the film and felt compelled to read the article on which it was based. Marie Colvin was a badass reporter and a larger than life character.
