As a Pulitzer Prize-nominated foreign correspondent, Jeffrey Fleishman has covered wars in Kosovo, Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan. In his post as Cairo Bureau Chief for the Los Angeles Times, he recently witnessed the fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's regime. But Jeffrey's new novel, Shadow Man, tackles a different kind of battle - pitting a relatively young man against his own, sharply-fading memories.
Jeffrey joined Margaret to talk about the inspiration behind Shadow Man, which is vastly different than his debut novel, Promised Virgins: A Novel of Jihad. He also shared how some of his own experiences have been woven into the two tales.
Jeffrey Fleishman will read from and sign copies of Shadow Man at two events:
5pm tonight (Tuesday, September 4): Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle
7pm tomorrow (Wednesday, September 5): Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park
