Chasing Chaos
My Decade In and Out of Humanitarian Aid

By Jessica Alexander
Random House (2013)
In this honest and irreverent memoir, Jessica Alexander introduces readers to the realities of life as an aid worker. We watch as she manages a 24,000-person camp in Darfur, collects trial evidence in Sierra Leone and contributes to the massive aid effort in Haiti; we also hear about parties, romances, burnouts and self-doubt while struggling to do good in places that have long endured suffering. 400 pp.
