“There Are No Falling Stars in China” by Marga Ortigas is a slim volume of a riveting page-by-page chronology of global events in “Countries of Conflict,” as she calls them.
Baghdad and Saddam and onwards to Gaza, as she describes each episode as “parachuted into a story” for CNN and Al Jazeera. She crosses five continents and multiple countries, reporting from each place with precision and insight.
Seasoned journalist Marga Ortigas navigates the road without missing a beat. She pauses briefly to compile these stories in “There Are No Falling Stars in China” and invites you to a genuinely eye-opening reading experience.
The books are available at National Book Store and Fully Booked.
