Megan K. Stack has reported on war, terrorism, and political Islam from the Arab world, the Middle East and Southeast Asia since 2001. During a decade at the Los Angeles Times, she was based in Jerusalem, Cairo, Moscow and finally Beijing. Her first book, Every Man in This Village is a Liar, was drawn from her experiences covering the war on terror, and was one of the five nonfiction finalists for the National Book Award in 2010. For her coverage of Iraq she was awarded the 2007 Overseas Press Club’s Hal Boyle Award for best newspaper reporting from abroad, and was a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in international reporting. She lives in Beijing with her husband, and is working on her next book – a novel set in contemporary Moscow.
