Talk: Love, Africa: A Memoir of Romance, War and Survival

Jeffrey Gettleman is the East Africa bureau chief for The New York Times. He won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for his work from Africa. He has covered warlords and pirates, rebels and elephant poachers. A surprisingly candid story for a well-known journalist to write, LOVE, AFRICA tracks across Iraq, Afghanistan, the murderous swamps of Florida, through the savannahs, deserts and rainforests of Africa and into emotionally treacherous terrain that leads to the deepest recesses of the human heart. Gettleman captures life’s extreme highs and lows, being terrified, facing off with the wrong people at the wrong time, and making devastating choices that hurt people he loved.
