about this book

Siobhan Darrow, former star correspondent for CNN, has covered the world’s hottest war zones over the past two decades, reporting from the front lines in Moscow, Chechnya, the Balkans, Albania and Northern Ireland.

Whether dodging bullets in an occupied village, interviewing world leaders, sharing the pain and disorientation of refugees on the move, or piecing her life together after a failed love affair, Darrow approaches all with the same honesty–and seat-of-the-pants courage–that established her reputation as a premiere reporter. Here is a riveting memoir of a woman finding her own way, and her own happy ending, amid extraordinary circumstances.

“Move over Murrow and Amanpour. If you want the real dish about the life and attempted loves of a war reporter, then read Flirting With Danger.”–Henry Shuster, Senior Producer, CNN

“Rather than adding to the heroic accounts of flak-jacketed foreign correspondents in danger zones, Flirting with Danger is an altogether more candid account of what really preoccupies the war reporter on assignment. Siobhan Darrow tells her story…with an eye for the telling details, with a relish for the absurd and, time and again, with disarming honesty.”–The Financial Times
