“Raises essential questions” – Mariane Pearl
Mariane Pearl, widow of Danny Pearl, my late colleague killed by al-Qaeda in Karachi in 2002, has read Dining with al-Qaeda. It was very important to me that she felt I did justice to the subject of what it was like to meet jihadi folk — and that I had talked realistically through what I understood that Danny was trying to do as my co-reporter on the Middle East beat.
“A very good book, and one that raises essential questions about journalism and our understanding of the world.”
