Frazier ↠ 5 characters Ical complexity and makes us feel its human cost And he gets its ironies Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller are somewhere smiling upon this account” Journalist and filmmaker Mary Jo McConahay author of National Geographic Book of the Month Maya Roads One Woman’s Journey Among the People of the RainforestAdapted from the author's introductionI covered El Salvador from 1979 1986 the worst of the war years for The Associated Press In addition to wartime coverage I visited several times later for the AP and after retirement took solo road trips down from Oregon in 2009 and 2011My memoir is a ground's eye view of the El Salvador war and of what it did to the peasants the soldiers the school kids the union leaders the shopkeepers the fishermen and artisans the parish priests the everyday unremarkable people who often wound up in unmarked graves and on the edit room floor It is also a look at the politics and economics and social history that underpinned the conflict I believe the journalists I worked with there in those years were among the finest anywhere Too many of them died trying to get the story out. Not knowing much about the Salvadoran Civil War I picked this up to get a bit of background I think it might be interesting to people who either are familiar with the author s work as a journalist or who know about the war to begin with It was an interesting book but many of the incidents described are difficult for me to place in proper context The author does provide some history to anchor them but his purpose isn t to teach you about the war As a memoir it works pretty well but as a first book on the subject it was a bit challenging to track at times Anyway based on the fabulous reviews from others I m guessing my three star review is probably due my failings rather than of the book but since I can t tell three stars it is
