“I’ve been a magazine journalist for about 25 years and have spent a great deal of time in the Middle East during that time, writing about the upheavals in the region. And about 2 ½ years ago the editor-in-chief of the NYT Magazine came to me with a proposal of taking a really comprehensive look at the Arab’s spring revolts that began in 2011, that utterly transformed the Middle East. And he held out the idea that if what I found was compelling enough that they might give me the entire issue of the magazine, something that had never been done with the NYT Magazine before.”
