Reportage resists easy definition and comes in many forms - travel essay, narrative history, autobiography - but at its finest it reveals hidden truths about people and events that have shaped the world we know. This new series, hailed as 'a wonderful idea' by Don DeLillo, both restores to print and introduces for the first time some of the greatest works of the genre. This is a visceral, on-the-spot, and unforgettable account of the fall of Saigon, war-ravaged Cambodia, and the Philippines in the midst of revolution from James Fenton, the right man in the wrong place in dangerous times.
