Eliza Griswold and the Female Poets of Afghanistan

I'm behind on my magazine reading so it's taken me a week to get around last week's New York Times Magazine. The magazine features Samuel L. Jackson on the cover, an excerpt from Paul Krugman's new book and a chilling dispatch from Ada Calhoun about how Alabama has criminalized bad mothering.

What stood out for me, though, was a story by Eliza Griswold who wrote a piece about why Afghan women risk death to write poetry. It's heartbreaking.
