Janine di Giovanni has spent most of her career—more than twenty years—in war zones recording events on behalf of the voiceless. From Sarajevo to East Timor, from Sierra Leone to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia, she has been under siege and under fire.

Along the way she meets Bruno, a French reporter whose spirit and audacity are a match for her own. Their love affair spans nearly a decade and a dozen armed conflicts before they settle in Paris to raise a family. But Janine soon learns that a life lived in war is inevitably haunted. Bruno struggles with physical and emotional pain, and Janine, a new mother and wife in Paris, is afraid for both Bruno and herself and for the work that they do—and doubtful that she can hold their lives together.

With stunning scenes of action and heart-wrenching accounts of profound love, personal loss, and redemption, Ghosts by Daylight tells the unforgettable story of a passionate life lived to the fullest.

About the Author:

Janine di Giovanni has won four major journalism awards, including the National Magazine Award, and is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair. She has reported from some of the world’s most dangerous places including Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Gaza, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Pakistan, Somalia, and Kosovo. She is the author of Madness Visible, The Quick and the Dead, and The Place at the End of the World. She lives in Paris, France.

Review:

“Janine di Giovanni has written a profound and beautiful book about the two great human struggles: love and war. That so much hope could shine through a story of such violence and destruction is testimony to the human spirit and, of course, the breathtaking clarity of Di Giovanni’s prose. It is a brilliant book about things that concern us all.
” (Sebastian Junger)

“Janine di Giovanni writes with unblinking courage about war, death, marriage, motherhood, loss, love, redemption, fear—indeed, about all the world's most pressing risks and dangers. She has seen far more of life than the rest of us, so she knows more than we do—and yet she lays down her memoir with touching and deeply honest humility. Her writing here (as ever in her remarkable career) is a great and important achievement.
” (Elizabeth Gilbert)
