Christina Lamb is one of Britain’s leading foreign correspondents and coauthor of the internationally bestselling and transformative I Am Malala. She has reported from most of the world’s hotspots, starting with Afghanistan in 1988 after an unexpected wedding invitation led her to move to Peshawar when she was just twenty-two. Her coverage of the mujaheddin fighting the Soviet Union was so compelling that within two years she had been named Young Journalist of the Year. Since then she has won fourteen major awards, including five times being named Foreign Correspondent of the Year and Europe’s top war reporting prize, the Prix Bayeux and was recently named by Harper’s Bazaar as one of Britain’s 150 Most Visionary Women. She is the author of The Sewing Circles of Herat; The Africa House; Farewell Kabul and House of Stone, among others, as well as the coauthor of Nujeen and the bestselling memoir I Am Malala. She was made an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by the Queen in 2013 and is an honorary fellow of University College, Oxford. She is the proud mum of a teenage boy.
