Book - Buzzing at the Sill
Peter van Agtmael
Buzzing at the Sill is Peter van Agtmael's work on his return home after years as a war correspondent in Iraq and Afghanistan and on trying to understand his experience and his country. During the September 11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, he was a history student in Yale; His guarded life was thrown out of the way, when he realized that he had to report on these wars.
