Publisher's Summary

Laura Kasinof studied Arabic in college and moved to Yemen a few years later - after a friend at a late-night party in Washington, DC, recommended the country as a good place to work as a freelance journalist. When she first moved to Sanaa in 2009, she was the only American reporter based in the country. She quickly fell in love with Yemen’s people and culture, in addition to finding herself the star of a local TV soap opera. When antigovernment protests broke out in Yemen, part of the revolts sweeping the Arab world at the time, she contacted the New York Times to see if she could cover the rapidly unfolding events for the newspaper. Laura never planned to be a war correspondent, but found herself in the middle of brutal government attacks on peaceful protesters. As foreign reporters were rounded up and shipped out of the country, Laura managed to elude the authorities but found herself increasingly isolated - and even more determined to report on what she saw. Don’t Be Afraid of the Bullets is a fascinating and important debut by a talented young journalist.

Excellent cultural resource

This book is insightful and well written, full of depth and detail about Yemeni culture. I found it to be an invaluable resource the understanding context of the current conflict as well as the human dimension. I'm glad she wrote it!

Very interesting but narration annoying in places

Got tired of the ridiculous comic voice the narrator gives every Yemeni man in this, seems borderline racist really.

Still a very interesting and candid account by this young reporter

Laura Kasinof's sincerity and candour make this a deeply affecting introduction to Yemen's complexities. Skilful narration.
Seems the least we could do is find out a little bit about the people our governments send bombers to kill.
