Eliza Griswold: I Am the Beggar of the World

For the New York Times bestselling The Tenth Parallel, journalist Eliza Griswold spent seven years traveling the geographic and ideological fronts in Africa and Asia where Christianity and Islam collide. She is also the author of Wideawake Field, a collection of poetry that visits many of these foreign landscapes. A 2012 Guggenheim fellow and former Nieman Fellow, Griswold has also been published in The New Yorker, Harper’s, and a slew of other leading publications. In her new book, she travels to Afghanistan to anthologize poems written by a diverse group of women who challenge the image of the voiceless figure under the burqa.
