Published by Rizzoli Editore, Milano About this Item: Rizzoli Editore, Milano, Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Italian text. In good, clean, unmarked condition. Un inno implicito alla vita. La descrizione attonita degli accadimenti bellici Siriani. A condimento, un contorno di situazioni terze , satellitari alla guerra, che con la guerra hanno a che fare, e dalla guerra di altri traggono nutrimento.
Certi aspetti del giornalismo, ad esempio, immutati nel tempo vedi libro equivalente, del , firmato da Evelyn Waugh In Abissinia. Il saprofitismo di alcuni professionismi descritto, anzi fotografato, in tutto il suo sconcio sapore. Senza paura. Con la franchezza del precariato che non si fa ossequioso. Tanto basti. Un libro che si trangugia. Da applauso.

Senza pregiudizi, senza quel velo di ipocrisia messo in atto molto spesso dalla stampa "ufficiale" per non disturbare il manovratore.
"anziani e bambini" English translation
Come per l'Iraq, la Libia, la Somalia e altri teatri di guerra, anche per la Siria penso si possa tutto sintetizzare nella citazione che l'autrice riporta a pag. Finalmente qualcuno che ci ha raccontato la soluzione sbagliata. View 1 comment. As a Syrian I found this book very accurate in many parts, and reflects on how some people are suffering while the others enjoy the luxuries of life, and the contrast in living in such one country.
However, the Syrian crises isn't a matter of "Suni-Shie" fight but of thirst for power like many other countries and dictators before, and also the book covers the early days of the Syrian revolution and crisis, therefore it only gives a peak on how this started but not how it involved.

Her only side is that of the Syrians themselves. Her writing is more poetry than prose, and captures in ways no news report I have ever read the horrors of war and the culpability of almost everyone: the hypocrisy of Western governments and their failure to act; NGOs, who happily collect money, but won't cross the border to deliver aid; reporters who are only there for their next big story, and leave as soon as 5th book for Her writing is more poetry than prose, and captures in ways no news report I have ever read the horrors of war and the culpability of almost everyone: the hypocrisy of Western governments and their failure to act; NGOs, who happily collect money, but won't cross the border to deliver aid; reporters who are only there for their next big story, and leave as soon as prize season is past; media organizations who only want to talk about deaths, but never about causes; the horrors of bombing raids, on bread queues and hospitals; people men, women, children dropping in front of you from sniper fire; planes flying overhead deciding who is to die next; women giving birth in underground tombs, living in sewers with their children, under bombed out cities; death everywhere; constant war; no hope.

She had a book of hers she The Italian journalist Francesca Borri texted me last week. She had a book of hers she wanted to gift me. We met for ice cream a few days later. Francesca proudly passed me her newly translated book, Syrian Dust, and we chatted about her coverage of the war in Syria and her work elsewhere.

An amazing person she is, to say the least. We parted and on my way to the car I opened the book to read the inscription. Then I read the book! I now know exactly what she meant. Syrian Dust is about the collapse of Syria, but it's more than that. It's about the Syrian people paying the price for all of this madness. If you have had, like I did, a hard time understanding how millions of Syrians would risk taking their family, or what remains thereof, and cross the Mediterranean Sea by boat to chance making it somewhere, anywhere, read this book.
Additionally, Francesca takes on an angle which has become taboo to address, the art and business of journalism in today's day and age. She bravely calls it out, the journalists, the editors, the papers, the fixers, etc. She rightly points a finger at all those so-called journalists who excitingly write about anything and everything from the comfort of their air conditioned newsrooms, never even seeing the places or people they write about. Francesca, who can now be classified as a war correspondent, is an old-fashion journalist, the few that write from the field, the few that see the eyes of the people thy cover, not only events.
My hat is off to her. All that matters is you. And what kind of a life is a life like that? Francesca, I don't know where I've read it but it also applies to you: You write like breathing. You write like breathing yet, what you write about is so horrible, so horrifying, so absurd; senseless, that it leaves me exhausted: breathless. I can't understand that drive -I'm only a waiter-, the drive to run into a hell while everybody else with a bit of common sense and the possibility to do it is desperately trying to flee away from it, but I thank you.
And I fear for you. Even though I don't Francesca, I don't know where I've read it but it also applies to you: You write like breathing. Even though I don't know you, even though I'll never meet you, even though this book isn't about you, I fear for you. That's the power of good writing. The power to engage other human beings into alien situations, and make them care. That's what you are fucking doing.
And I fucking thank you for it. I first encountered Francesca Borri's writing the same way many did — by reading her much-shared article about the second-class treatment of freelancers on the frontline.
