Gail Sheehy, legendary author of the worldwide bestseller, Passages, turns the lens on her own passages in this gutsy memoir.

In Daring, we follow Sheehy as she overcomes the 'pink ghetto' of newspapers—"women's pages"— to conquer the gritty "man's world" of New Journalism.

Writing for New York Magazine and others, Sheehy walked city streets with hookers to expose violent prostitution, marched with protesters in Northern Ireland, and interviewed Egypt's president Anwar Sadat after he was targeted for assassination.

An amazing life told in person by the woman who is living it!

Here is a forshbite (that's Yiddish for hors d'oeuvres, one of the most-looked-up words on the Internet) of what's in store for Albuquerque.
