Malcolm Garcia’s foreign reporting cited by Dave Eggers
Intrepid, Kansas City-based journalist J. Malcolm Garcia got a name check in an Onion A.V. Club interview with writer and publisher Dave Eggers.
Garica, the author of a recent feature story in The Pitch, contributed to Panorama, the print-journalism extravaganza that hit the streets of San Francisco last month. The 320-page broadsheet represents Eggers’ belief in and hope for newspapers.
Panorama published a piece Garcia reported while in Afghanistan during the 2009 presidential election. Garcia has made several visits to Afghanistan since 9/11. His experiences are collected in the book The Khaarijee: A Chronicle of Friendship and War in Kabul.
A review of Panorama said Garcia’s diary from Kabul “seemed particularly timely and full of short, crisp sentences that moved the piece right along.”
