Sciolino has resided in France since 2002. She writes the “Letter From France” column for T Magazine and contributes to the food, culture, styles and Sunday Review sections. Her journalistic pursuits have undeniably propelled Sciolino’s expertise in an array of foreign affairs, and she flexes her world-wise muscles in her literary titles, The Outlaw State: Suddam Hussein’s Quest for Power and the Gulf Crisis and Persian Mirrors: The Elusive Face of IranPersian Mirrors was awarded the 2001 New York Public Library Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Overseas Press Club Cornelius Ryan Citation for nonfiction.
