The Things I've Seen is the first book to feature the award-winning work of journalist and foreign correspondent Lara Marlowe. From her beginnings as a reporter with CBS and the Financial Times to her work for Time magazine and her most recent appointment with the Irish Times in Paris and Washington, this collection of new and selected in-depth pieces is full of the insight and reflection we have come to expect from the veteran reporter.

Featuring a lengthy introduction on the nature of the correspondent's work and charting her own career, this debut publication includes lengthy articles selected by Lara herself - including several that were suppressed or quashed by certain publications - notably in the case of a long piece charting three generations of a Palestinian family from 1948 onwards, which Time magazine would ultimately quash. Her work has brought her to war zones in the Middle East, Afghanistan and the Balkans, and she lived for several years in Beirut working for Time.

Irish readers are most familiar with her recent spell as the Paris-based correspondent for the Irish Times and the book features some of her best writing from that posting, including a wonderful portrait of Carla Bruni, whom she met in the singer's private Paris residence. Currently she is US correspondent for the Irish Times and the book covers the Obama administration's tumultuous first years, the devastation in Haiti and the recent environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
