Books: This journalist died, but his words linger on...beautifully

Anthony Shadid died on 16 February (2012), but his words, his gentle but persistent passion lingers, resonates and pulls at the strings of my heart and tugs at my writer's fingers.

The NYRB published an excerpt of Shadid's book, "Night Draws Near " a captivating example of the subtlety he brought to his reporting and the love he had for the Middle East, including the war zones and in this book, Iraq.

He is missed.
