Critically acclaimed writer and award-winning foreign correspondent, Anthony Loyd is also an ex-heroin addict. ANOTHER BLOODY LOVE LETTER exposes the thrilling and brutal reality of life as a war journalist - from the climax of war in Kosovo to tracking ambush commanders in Sierra Leone, confronting the danger and confusion of northern Afghanistan at the start of the 'war on terror', and the harsh realities of life in Iraq during the second Gulf War. But it is also the very human story of a man fighting to beat a heroin addiction and coming to terms with the death of a friend and colleague murdered by the RUF in Sierra Leone, and the death of his mother from a terminal illness at home. ANOTHER BLOODY LOVE LETTER takes the reader into the mind of a man who has chased war and death for more than half his life, and must now find clarity. It is a moving and powerful memoir of love and friendship, betrayal and loss, war and faith.

Recensione:

'There is much to treasure...Beyond the "gun battle override" and the "Humvee cupolas gunners" we find a brave, lovely man and a talented if over-wrought writer, bursting to be free' (The Times)

'Anthony Loyd is something special... It's rare to find a man of action who is so naturally fluent with the pen. I'm tempted to invoke Hemingway but I think that might be doing Loyd a disservice' (Mail on Sunday)

'Anthony Loyd is something special... Loyd writes about both his inner demons and the horrors of war with passion, insight and unflinching honesty. It's rare to find a man of action who is so naturally fluent with the pen. I'm tempted to invoke Hemingway but I think that might be doing Loyd a disservice' (Mail on Sunday)

'Devastating honesty... Loyd shows himself to be the best guide through today's wars working in the English language' (Daily Telegraph)

'Two things set Anthony Loyd apart from your average, war-weary combat-zone junkie: a luminous prose style that sometimes borders on the visionary, and a fiercely principled integrity' (Daily Mail)

'Interesting and enduring... You are guaranteed a terrific buzz, with a lingering dark aftertaste. What is most amazing is that for all the bullets and drugs, this is not a story about thrills 'n' chills, or even kills. It's about choice - and what it means to say goodbye. (Guardian)

'A compelling account of the world's frontlines' (Financial Times)

'A great big bloody bong of horror, chaos, gallows humour, loss, boredom and self-loathing, followed by slack-jawed self-medication... If this is just another vicarious hit of a war correspondent's memories, well, it's seriously good shit, man' (Independent on Sunday)

'[A] powerful and moving account...a first rate read. Insightful and funny, harrowing and honest, Loyd is wonderfully frank about himself and his role' (Sunday Express)

Descrizione del libro:
