Eliza Griswold

Celebrated journalist, poet, and New York Times bestselling author Eliza Griswold, whose most recent book is the poetry and photography compilation I Am the Beggar of the World: Landays from Contemporary Afghanistan, speaks on the intersections and overlap of her Middle East reportage and poetry.

Eliza Griswold‘s recently published I Am the Beggar of the World: Landays from Contemporary Afghanistan (2014) pairs her poetry translations and commentary with photographs by Seamus Murphy. Her first poetry collection, Wideawake Field, was published in 2007 by Farrar, Strauss & Giroux. Her nonfiction book, The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches from the Fault Lines Between Christianity and Islam (2010) won the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize and was a New York Times bestseller. As a journalist, she received the inaugural Robert I. Friedman Award for investigative reporting. Eliza Griswold lives in New York City.
