Inhaltsangabe: Book by Rawlence Ben
"A distressing but important read." - "Kirkus Reviews"
"Intrepid and undaunted by hazards that would send most journalists scurrying back to the bar of their hotel, Ben Rawlence gets far deeper into the life of this war-torn country than most."
--Adam Hochschild, author of "King Leopold's Ghost"
"Lucid, laconic, and elegantly written."
--Michela Wrong, author of "In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz"
"Gripping... Rawlence gets under Congo's skin... He makes a self-effacing guide with a necessary sense of the ridiculous, an eye for the telling detail and a talent for evocative description. But it is his closeness to the Congolese that really stands out."
--"The Times" (London)
""Radio Congo" is an unexpected broadcast of hope... This is a much-needed to a misunderstood country--and a welcome glimpse of sunshine."
"Intimate and entertaining portraits."
"Rawlence writes in a lyrical style, whether he's introducing us to some of the eccentric characters he meets along the way or... the scenes he encounters, both harsh and beautiful."
--"We Love This Book"
"A compelling debut."
