Rania Abouzeid has won the Michael Kelly Award and George Polk Award for foreign reporting, among many other prizes for international journalism. She has written for The New Yorker, Time, Foreign Affairs, Politico, the Guardian, and the Los Angeles Times. A former New America fellow, she lives in Beirut, Lebanon. In No Turning Back: Life, Loss, and Hope in Wartime Syria (W.W. Norton) Abouzeid tells the tragedy of the Syrian War through the dramatic stories of four young people seeking safety and freedom in a shattered country. Extending back to the first demonstrations of 2011, No Turning Back dissects the tangle of ideologies and allegiances that make up the Syrian conflict. The New Yorker writes of Abouzeid’s book, “[An] unparalleled account of the Syrian uprising, drawing on six years of immersive reporting.”
