I’m Laura Kasinof, journalist and author of Don’t Be Afraid of the Bullets: An Accidental War Correspondent in Yemen, the story of my time as the New York Times correspondent in Yemen during the Arab Spring. P1010513

PRI’s the World named Don’t Be Afraid of the Bullets a top book of 2014 and Kirkus called it, “A moving portrait of life as a war correspondent.”

More recently, I’ve been writing about refugee life in Berlin, the trade of domestic workers in the Middle East, and — bringing it back stateside — evangelicals who secretly go to Planned Parenthood. I still occasionally write about Yemen, while my work tends to focus on religion, migration, and life after war. I’ve dabbled in the art of the essay.
