I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Jonathan Schell – a thinker, writer, and truth-teller of the highest order whose extraordinary reporting from Vietnam gave us some of the most indelible works on the war.  Not one to rest on his laurels, Schell went on to write incisively on the Nixon years before producing prescient books on the risks of nuclear war and the rise of people power. 

It was one of the great honors of my life to have Jonathan Schell endorse my own book on the Vietnam War and speaking with him about that conflict is indelibly seared into mind.  His work will endure for its truth and its humanity.  My late friend Gloria Emerson, another great chronicler of the Vietnam War said it best:  “If, years from now, Americans are willing to read any books about the war, let them be The Village of Ben Suc and The Military Half by Jonathan Schell. They tell everything.”

For those in the Bay Area, I’ve got two appearances coming up.

The next night, January 28 at 7:30 pm, I’ll be having a conversation with Vietnam veteran and former POW Phillip Butler at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley.

Hope to see you at either or both. For more details:

In online comments and over email, I was called a prostitute and the C-word. J. B. Handley, a critic of childhood vaccination and the founder of the autism group Generation Rescue, affiliated with the actress Jenny McCarthy, sent me an essay titled, “Paul Offit Rapes (intellectually) Amy Wallace and Wired Magazine.” In it, he implied that my subject had slipped me a date-rape drug. Later, an anti-vaccine website Photoshopped my head onto the body of a woman in a strapless dress who sat next to Dr. Offit at a festive dinner table. The main course? A human baby.
