ALL WE LEAVE BEHIND
An arts reporter and Ottawa correspondent in the ‘80s. International CBC correspondent in the ‘90s and ‘00s. Award-winning documentarian. Award-winning author. And, since 2006, host of As It Happens. Carol Off has somehow packed the work of about four careers into one. As a television reporter, she covered the Middle East, the Balkans, Afghanistan, the United States, the former Soviet Union—and most other places. She has also covered Canadian military missions around the world, including combat operations in Kandahar after 9/11.
Her work in the Balkans led her to write the best-selling book The Lion, The Fox, and the Eagle: A Story of Generals and Justice in Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Since that book came out in 2000, she’s written three more—including, most recently, All We Leave Behind: A Reporter’s Journey into the Lives of Others, winner of the British Columbia National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction.
