When

Mark Danner has reported and written on foreign affairs, politics and war for 25 years. He was for many years a staff writer at The New Yorker and contributes frequently to The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Magazine, and other publications.

Danner’s work has been chosen as a New York Times Notable Book and honoured with a US National Magazine award, three Overseas Press Awards and an Emmy. His latest book, Stripping Bare the Body, shows at close hand how terrorism works and how war looks and feels.

In an in-depth interview with Fran Kelly, Danner will uncover the grim realities of some of the world’s broken places, giving his perspective on American power during the last quarter century and reflecting on the state of journalism today. It will be an unforgettable session.
