Originally a long-form piece filling an entire NYT Magazine issue, Anderson's account of the invasion of Iraq and its devastating aftermath is one of the few humanizing accounts of the region and its people that I've encountered in the genre. Following the lives of six individuals facing various circumstances and clinging to various allegiances, one can trace the unfolding of a world and its innocents. Stephanie's Staff Pick, June 2017
