'Penned by some of the biggest names in contemporary writing, the 14 chapters of Writing On The Edge tell as harrowing a collection of tales as it's possible to imagine - and not a word is fiction.
The writers, including Martin Amis. Michel Faber, Ali Smith and Hari Kunzru, all travelled to the godforsaken places where Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) carries out essential medical work.
The writers' unblinking responses to the tragedies that pass for everyday life in places such as Palestine, Chad, Burundi and Congo-Brazzaville are filled with unforgettable images.'

'While we are never far from fashion's front line, Vogue photographer Tom Craig has been working further afield. At the launch of his book Writing on the Edge at the Royal Society of Medicine, he was joined by director Danny Boyle, writers Martin Amis, AA Gill and Ali Smith-all of whom had travelled with Tom to some of the world's troublespots to report on the work of Médecins Sans Frontières.'
