The Book of Mev is the story of Mev Puleo, an American photojournalist and young Catholic who actively confronted a world of injustice, poverty and violence. From witnessing homelessness in the United States to struggles for social change in Haiti, El Salvador, and Brazil, Puleo used photography and interviews to be a bridge between poverty and affluence, the First World and the Third World. Puleo's familiarity with suffering, however, was dramatically intensified when she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor at the age of thirty-one. She died twenty-one months later.

Mark Chmiel is currently a professor of mine and he is a very intelligent, understanding individual, and this book about him and his late wife is so inspiring and beautiful it makes me feel hope like only a few books do!!
The Book of Mev is a tragic yet unforgettable love story. I sobbed through many chapters, perhaps it is because I knew Mev. She left us too young. She was an inspiring person who lived life to the fullest! She is missed by many and this world could use her passion for justice.
