About this audiobook

Bill Gentile did more than just "cover" Nicaragua's Sandinista Revolution and the Contra War. He lived them. First as correspondent for United Press International (UPI) and later as photojournalist for Newsweek magazine, Gentile experienced those historic events from the inside, as the partner of a Nicaraguan woman whose prominent family "adopted" him as one of their own. His memoir takes readers not only to the 1979 revolution, the Contra War in the merciless mountains of Nicaragua and to the deadly streets of El Salvador, but also to the steel mills and backyards of southwestern Pennsylvania where the Italian immigrant community prepared him for those conflicts, and then waited for his return. This book introduces the American public to the victims of U.S. intervention abroad. It is a firsthand, frontline account of the human cost of war.

Wait for Me: True Stories of War, Love and Rock & Roll, explores family, self, love, loss and love again - told against a backdrop of adversity and warfare.
