The mother of murdered US journalist James Foley is writing a book about her son.
Rider Press says it had acquired the memoir by Diane Foley, whose son
was a freelance reporter executed publicly by ISIS in 2014. The book is
scheduled for early 2017 and is currently untitled.
According to
Blue Rider, an imprint of Penguin Random House, the book will include
not just the memories of Diane Foley, but also will feature interviews
with others who knew him and a critical take on the “shockingly
unresponsive US government” response to James Foley’s abduction in 2012.
Foley’s parents are from Rochester, New Hampshire.
