Writing on the Edge: MSF Anthology

Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières and Rizzoli have published an anthology called Writing on the Edge: Great Contemporary Writers On The Frontline of Crisis, "a collection of 14 first-hand accounts of life inside conflict zones where the international medical humanitarian organization provides emergency medical care. The book takes readers on a harrowing tour of countries in crisis, profiling people struggling to cope with war, disease, and lack of access to basic health care. Award-winning photographer Tom Craig teamed up with MSF and an international roster of 14 highly-esteemed, widely-traveled writers, directors, and actors, and visited various MSF projects, returning with poignant accounts of their experiences."

Martin Amis on Colombia's drug war, Daniel Day-Lewis in Gaza, plus Danny Boyle, Tracy Chevalier, Michel Faber, Jim Crace, Damon Galgut, AA Gill, Joanne Harris, Ali Smith, John McGregor, DBC Pierre, Minette Walters and me.
