Geraldine Brooks uses reporting to write another novel
We read former Wall Street Journal reporter Tony Horwitz's work in class. But his spouse, Geraldine Brooks is just as prolific when it comes to penning books based on foreign correspondence. She has written a number of books, including March, for which she won the Pulitzer Prize. Brooks got the idea for her latest book, People of the Book: A Novel, while covering the Bosnian war as a foreign correspondent. The book is a fictional account of the Sarajevo Haggadah, a centuries-old manuscript.
