A little off the wall, but...
I'm reading an Advance Review Copy of "My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel" by Ari Shavat to write a review on.
The materials gave his bio as a well known Israeli reporter etc... but I didn't think I'd ever heard of him.
And then today who does Hala have on Amanpour - Ari Shavat! Maybe he's been on before, but this time he got my attention.

Just an addendum.  I just realized that the MENA prime time shows have 3 women anchors & 1 man (Amanpour, Hala Gorani, Beckie Anderson & Richard Qwest)

Published last month, “Sohn Jie-ae. CNN. Seoul” resembles its writer: It is ambitious and expansive, touching on everything from career advice to journalism, government work, North Korea, feminism and family life."

New one from Jeffrey Toobin: American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst.

I recently read Days of Rage about the 60's radical groups and this one sounds like it fits right in with that.

 

And waiting for the mailman to bring the final installment - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child...
