Award-winning author and journalist Janine di Giovanni has been covering global conflict since the 1980s, and is considered one of Europe's most respected journalists.
About Janine: Biography and Interviews
Her new book, Ghosts by Daylight, has been called by Sebastian Junger "a profound and beautiful book about the two great human struggles: Love and War", and by Elizabeth Gilbert "a great and important achievement".
In her book, The Place at the End of the World: Essays from the Edge, as with all her writing, she covers the human cost of war - working often in conflict zones that the world's press has forgotten.
She is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, a contributing writer to the New York Times, Granta, Newsweek and many others; and now a weekly columnist for international affairs for Newsweek.
