More Info

From the #1 New York Times best seller Black Hawk Down to the acclaimed Killing Pablo, Mark Bowden has been praised for his unique, novelistic ability to put his reader in the heat of the story. Road Work collects Bowden's award-winning nonfiction, from his breakout stories for The Philadelphia Inquirer to his most recent high-profile pieces in The Atlantic. Road Work takes us everywhere from a small town in Rhode Island where one of the largest cocaine rings in history is uncovered, to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia where a bold team of antipoachers fights to save the fate of the black rhinoceros. Bowden's high-profile look at Saddam Hussein, nominated for a National Magazine Award, shed such new and dramatic light on one of the world's most notorious figures that it has been optioned for film. And his shocking exposé on the dark art of interrogation, also nominated for a National Magazine Award, offers an insider's eye into the unique and controversial ways in which we are fighting the war on terrorism. The stories in Road Work are powerfully gripping, elucidating, and often wryly humorous.
