Syrian Dust: Reporting from the Heart of the War - Francesca Borri

Staff Pick

Italian freelance journalist Francesca Borri spent over 2 years reporting from Aleppo, Syria, bearing witness to the devastation of Syria’s largest and wealthiest city. She infuses her reports from the front lines of the battle for Aleppo with poetic descriptions of the people who somehow manage to live among a shattered cityscape, where a mortar or barrel bomb can come crashing down at any moment. Borri’s healthy cynicism about the motivations of all sides in the conflict, and her ability to transport you to the front lines through vivid prose, recall Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia.
