Fatima Bhutto

Q&A with Steve Coll, New America Foundation

Fatima Bhutto lives and writes in Karachi, Pakistan. She is the author of countless articles, published by New Statesman, Daily Beast, Guardian, and The Caravan Magazine, among others. She wrote Whispers of the Desert, a volume of poetry, which was published in 1997 she was 15 years old and 8.50 a.m. 8 October 2005, a collection of first-hand accounts from survivors of the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan.
