Pacific Time podcast: Story behind Fatima Bhutto's story

October 15, 2010 | 12:38 pm

Fatima Bhutto Times staff writer Lori Kozlowski recently had a chance to speak with author Fatima Bhutto, the niece of Benazir Bhutto, for an upcoming piece in Books. Fatima Bhutto's new book, "Songs of Blood and Sword," outlines her father's life and traces the roots of her political family in Pakistan.

Benazir Bhutto, of course, was the first female to serve as prime minister of an Islamic nation and was assassinated in 2007 after a campaign rally. The author's father was killed by police in 1996.

We get to listen in on a conversation Kozlowski had with Fatima Bhutto about her memoir and the role of Muslim women in politics today.
