His expertise covering dangerous work across the globe has garnered him the National Magazine Award for Reporting. The author of the New York Times' bestselling The Perfect Storm, Fire, and A Death in Belmont, Junger has traveled the world in his pursuit of life on the edge. He's worked as a special correspondent in Afghanistan, reported on the LURD besiegement of Monrovia in Liberia, human rights' abuses in Sierra Leone, war crimes in Kosovo, the peacekeeping mission in Cypress, wildfire in the American West, guerilla war in Afghanistan, hostage-taking in Kashmir, and the U.S. led war in Afghanistan. He also worked as a freelance radio correspondent during the war in Bosnia, is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and  was the director (with Tim Hetherington) of the documentary film Restrepo, which was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.More information:  www.sebastianjunger.com "If you thought you knew what the Afghanistan war was like, Sebastian Junger brings a jolt of reality that leaves you questioning whether the war can, or even should, be won. This is frontline, raw, combat reporting the quality of which you don't often read, because quite frankly, most war reporters never see it. Junger has and he doesn't hold back in the telling."  -Peter Mansbridge  (New York Times Book Review)   KPFA benefit
