Anthony Shadid's final days and House of Stone

I've already ordered my copy of Anthony Shadid's House of Stone, and I know it'll be great based on his other books and writing, but I don't know that it can be more moving than photographer Tyler Hicks' account of Shadid's final reporting trip or the interview with Nada Bakri on today's episode of Democracy Now.

I do hope that someone is looking at putting together a collection of Shadid's newspaper articles from the Middle East. It would read a little rough, as do any collection of newspaper articles, but I think that a good selection in one place could really be a great addition to our literature of the region, offering a mosaic of voices from the region.
