Críticas:

Praise for IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MR KURTZ:

‘Michela Wrong made the so-called 'Heart of Darkness' much less opaque to me when I visited the Congo. She can do the same for you if you read this brave and witty book.’ Christopher Hitchens

‘A brilliant account of Africa’s most extraordinary dictator told with wry wit and delicious irony … this book will become a classic.’ The Economist

Praise for IT’S OUR TURN TO EAT:

‘An exceptionally talented writer…More than a story about a whistle-blower, and more than about Kenya. It could have been written anywhere where corruption is endemic.’ Guardian

‘The story offers a fascinating insight into Kenya and is a thrilling whodunit, worthy of John Le Carre.’ the london paper

‘Michella Wrong has written a compelling book. Well researched, poignant.’ Graham Boyton, Daily Telegraph

Praise for I Didn’t Do It For You:

‘Contemporary history on the grand scale. I was entertained, informed and angered. Wrong has given us another essential contribution to the post-colonial scramble for Africa.’ John le Carre

‘If you thought Eritrea was some exotic flower you heard mentioned on a gardening programme this book will tell you something different … It is an astounding story packed with tales of the worst – and the best – of human behaviour.’ Richard Dowden, President of the Royal African Society

'This is a wonderful, readable and illuminating book. Michela Wrong is an enormously talented writer.' Clare Short – New Statesman

'A lyrical, intensely intelligent and wonderfully readable history of Eritrea … beautifully written' Independent

Críticas:

‘Few other writers could make a border dispute in the Hague have readers sitting on the edges of their chairs. And no other writer I know of is capable of making Africa seem just as accessibly screwed up as our own messy political back yards. BORDERLINES is beautifully written and tautly told. It helps to explain why refugees from the Horn are queuing for boats in Libya, and portrays the searing disappointment of fighting a liberation war for years only to be betrayed by your own side. That disappointment isn't African; it's universal.’ Lionel Shriver, author of WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN

PRAISE FOR MICHELA WRONG’S NONFICTION:

‘Contemporary history on the grand scale. I was entertained, informed and angered.’ John le Carre

‘Michela Wrong made the so-called 'Heart of Darkness' much less opaque to me … She can do the same for you if you read this brave and witty book’ Christopher Hitchens

‘Brilliant … This book will become a classic’ The Economist

‘An exceptionally talented writer’ Guardian

'This is a wonderful, readable and illuminating book. Michela Wrong is an enormously talented writer' New Statesman
