In Extremis, written by her fellow reporter Lindsey Hilsum, is a thrilling investigation into Colvin's epic life and tragic death based on exclusive access to her intimate diaries from age thirteen to her death, interviews with people from every corner of her life, and impeccable research." --

Obtained after seeing film A Private War w Rosamond Pike--reporter with a death wish, in a way. Lived very hard, kept herself apart, enjoyed her life and brought excitement and joy to other's lives. Not so hot childhood, need to prove herself. Targeted by Assad for death. Lawsuit pending in early 2019. An amazingly intrepid woman.
