About the Author

Since leaving England aged 21 with a yearning for adventure, Christina Lamb has spent 20 years reporting from around the world and becoming one of Britain's most highly regarded journalists. 'Small Wars Permitting' is a collection of her best reportage, following the events of the last two decades everywhere from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Lamb's writing is passionate, powerful and poetic, transforming journalism into literature. Through the stories she tells -- and her development from a self-confessed 'war junkie' to a devoted mother -- Lamb attempts to comprehend the human consequences of conflict across the globe. Christina Lamb's journalism has appeared in The Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph and Financial Times, amongst others. In 2007, she was named Foreign Correspondent of the Year for the fourth time.

Reviews

Praise for 'Small Wars Permitting': 'Hers is the humane face of her hard profession: candid, modest and brave. She is clear-sighted without cynicism, and amazingly unscarred by all she has experienced. This book is a fine testament to her courage and compassion.' Colin Thubron Praise for 'House of Stone': 'Lamb is a careful observer, and her anguished refrain is the terrible schizophrenia of people who fiercely love their land but do nothing to save it!the strength is in the storytelling!her book deserves to be read.' Daily Telegraph More Praise: 'A remarkable blend of outrage, compassion and hope, Christina Lamb's book is an alternately horrifying and uplifting insight into the Taliban regime.' Justin Marozzi, Evening Standard
