Naked in BaghdadBook - 2003
As NPR's senior foreign correspondent, Garrels has covered conflicts in Chechnya, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. She is renowned for the direct, down-to-earth reportage and her independent-minded insight into what she observes. One of only sixteen un-embedded American journalists who stayed in the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad throughout the American invasion, Garrels was uniquely placed to describe our latest war. Her Iraqi driver becomes her friend and confidant, often serving as her eyes and ears among the populace and taking her where no other reporter was able to penetrate. His opinions and poignant personal story provide a trenchant counterpoint to the headline news.--From publisher description.
