Philip Caputo spent nine years as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, including five years as a foreign correspondent, and shared a Pulitzer Prize in 1972 for his reporting on election fraud in Chicago. In 1975, he was wounded in Beirut and during his convalescence completed the manuscript for A Rumor of War, his much acclaimed memoir about his service in Vietnam. He is the author of eight works of fiction—including Exiles, The Voyage, and Acts of Faith—two memoirs, and four works of nonfiction.
