All Things Must Fight to Live Bryan Mealer
"This is an unforgettable tour through the aftermath of war and colonialism, in a country (DRC) that is still the site of the greatest humanitarian catastrophe on earth. It is nonfiction at its best: harrowing, beautifully crafted, and, in the end, redemptive."
"It is Mealer's gift that even when he is covering ... well worn territory , the fog of war, the addictive and atrophied life of the combat reporter - his writing is not only fresh but empathetic." (Time)
