The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches from the Fault Line Between Christianity and Islam - Eliza Griswold

In this important and illuminating book, journalist and poet Eliza Griswold roams The Tenth Parallel (Picador, $16) to discover how the globe’s largest populations of Muslims and Christians mingle, co-exist, and clash “from village to village and street corner to street corner.” Griswold spent nearly a decade in Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, where competition—for resources as well as souls—is fierce. She skillfully fills out individual stories with lessons in history and geography: the legacy of colonialism, the implications of climate change. Her sharp curiosity and intimate, compassionate style of reporting highlight the daily realities in some of the world’s most perilous places.
