A few weeks after the planes crashed into the World Trade Centre on 9/11, LA Times journalist Megan Stack was thrust into Afghanistan and Pakistan, dodging gunmen and prodding warlords for information. She then travelled to other war ravaged countries of the Middle East including Israel and Libya, witnessing and telling the stories of the changing Muslim world. Stack relates her initial wild excitement and her slow disillusionment as the cost of violence outweighs the elusive promise of freedom and democracy. She reports from under bombardment in Lebanon; records the raw pain of suicide bombings in Israel; and one by one, marks the deaths and disappearance of those she interviews. Every Man in This Village is a Liar is a deeply human memoir about the wars of the twenty first century. Beautiful, savage and unsettling, it is an indispensible book of our times.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Every Man in This Village is a Liar is a courageous report from the front lines of the hostilities between the West and the Muslim world. Journalist Megan Stack sheds the customary pretenses of her profession to show us-with blistering eloquence and her own raw nerves laid bare-war's impact on the non-combatants who bear the brunt of its horrors. You'll be thinking about this book long after you turn the final page' * Jon Krakauer, author of Into Thin Air *
`Stack's book may be the best account yet of the so-called "War on Terror"' * Independent *
`There is hope. Stack has soul. Stack gets it. She feels in her gut and has a clarity of thought and boldness of expression that is rare, and delicious' * Sam Kiley, The Times *
'This is a brave and beautifully written book' * Christina Lamb, Sunday Times *
