(AP) A compilation of articles by Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter abducted and killed in Pakistan, will come out in book form this summer.
Pearl’s widow, Mariane, will write the foreword. Colleagues of Pearl will contribute personal anecdotes.
“Whether uncovering wrongdoing, profiling memorable characters, or highlighting the hilarious and the absurd, his articles represent the best of the Journal — and of journalism,” Stephen J. Adler, the newspaper’s deputy managing editor, said in a statement this week.
Wall Street Journal Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish the Pearl book, which is not yet titled. Profits will be donated to the Daniel Pearl Memorial Trust, for Mariane Pearl and their child, due to be born in May.
Pearl, 38, was kidnapped in Pakistan on Jan. 23 while pursuing a story related to Islamic fundamentalism. A videotape showing him decapitated was delivered to U.S. officials in Pakistan. Police believe a dozen or more people were involved.
