Night Draws Near, as compelling as it is human, is an illuminating and poignant account from a reporter whose coverage has drawn international attention and acclaim.
National Book Critics Circle Award Nominee, 2005, General Nonfiction
" "Incisive and eloquent." (The New York Times)
"The book, which moves among scenes and characters like a picaresque novel, is not only a pleasure to read but a welcome source of information. Shadid offers just enough history and context to orient the reader, and he includes the kinds of details, adages, prayers, lyrics from pop songs, that make a place come alive. In the end, Baghdad is the character he mourns most." (Publishers Weekly)
"A frequently moving and sometimes heartbreaking portrait of individuals striving to live their private lives when circumstances often make the pursuit of personal happiness almost impossible." (Booklist)

Too little, too late
This guy is not much of a narrator, and not much of a writer either. Instead of a coherent overview of what happened, all we get is a mishmash of stories and pieces of Bush administration polices mixed together.
