'House of Stone': A Memoir by the Late Anthony Shadid

The Takeaway
Less than two weeks ago, Anthony Shadid, a foreign correspondent for The New York Times, died in Syria from an acute asthma attack. Shadid covered nearly two decades of Middle East conflict, won the Pulitzer Prize twice, and authored three books. "House of Stone," his final book, goes on sale today.   Thanassis Cambanis was one of Shadid's closest friends and colleagues, and he discusses his memories of his friend, his "house of stone," and his memoir. Cambanis is a columnist at the Boston Globe and a correspondent for The Atlantic, for which he wrote "The Things That Anthony Shadid Taught Me," a remembrance of his friend. He is also the author of "A Privilege to Die: Inside Hezbollah's Legions and Their Endless War Against Israel."
