By turns funny and poignant, and moving from New England to the Middle East, Correspondents is an epic family saga.
Tim Murphy is a journalist who has written for, among others, the New York Times, New York Magazine, Details, Conde Nast Traveler, WSJ Magazine, Out, and The Advocate. He lives in Brooklyn and in the Hudson Valley.
Murphy artfully connects multiple narratives to produce a
sprawling tale of love, family, duty, war, and displacement. It
is above all a stinging indictment of the ill-fated war in Iraq and
the heavy tolls it continues to exact on its people. -- Khaled
Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner
Captivating . . . Correspondents is an expansive, multigenerational epic, rich in empathy and insight. * National *
Its precision, depth and empathy are all from someone who has created a powerful voice in many respects because of his sexuality . . . He's not just a gay writer. He's a super gay writer . . . [An] emotionally resonant, time-hopping page turner . . . driven by a gripping plot. * Huffington Post *
Correspondents is the novel I've been hoping would emerge for a long time. Some might classify it as an American epic, or an epic of the 9/11-Wars, or even a Middle Eastern epic; however, like all great art it asserts our shared humanity across categorizations. So, ultimately, the story of Rita and Nabil transcends categorization itself to become a human epic, one you won't soon forget. -- Elliot Ackerman, author of Waiting for Eden
