Marie Colvin and Other Tales of Heroes, Scoundrels, and Renegades

by Brenner, Marie

This is a collection of several non-fiction profiles Marie Brenner wrote for Vanity Fair.

In A Private War, Marie Brenner brilliantly chronicles the last days and hours of of legendary war correspondent Marie Colvin, who died in 2012 while covering the Syrian civil war. The profile of A Private War was made into a 2018 movie starring Rosamund Pike, Stanley Tucci, and Jamie Dornan.

This collection also includes Brenner's classic encounters with Donald Trump, Roy Cohn, Malala Yousafzai, Richard Jewell, and others.

Richard Jewell was the security guard whose dramatic heroism at the bombing of the 1996 Olympics made him the FBI's prime suspect. This profile too, was made into a film. Simon & Schuster will publish the profile as a movie tie-in edition.

Marie Brenner is the author of seven books and is Writer at Large for Vanity Fair. She has been a staff writer at The New Yorker, a contributing editor at New York magazine and has won numerous awards for her reporting around the world. Her expose of the tobacco industry, "The Man Who Knew Too Much," was the basis for the 1999 movie The Insider, which was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. She lives in New York City.
