Anmeldelser

«A compelling, generous, and distinctive inquiry into the nature of belief, credibility, and, above all, the deeply unjust and unequal societies in which we live.»

Chitra Ramaswamy, author of HOMELANDS: THE HISTORY OF A FRIENDSHIP

«A profound, gorgeous, devastating book, exhilarating in both its compassion and its contemplation of pain ... Who Gets Believed? is that rarest of creations, an original work about a condition in which we are all implicated.»

Jeff Sharlet, bestselling author of THE FAMILY and THIS BRILLIANT DARKNESS

«A truly remarkable book, where universal and deeply personal themes are powerfully interwoven ... A masterclass in storytelling, teasing out the crucial implications of 'who gets believed' for all of us.»

Steve Crawshaw, policy director at Freedom from Torture and author of STREET SPIRIT: THE POWER OF PR

«I was hugely moved by this book ... Essential reading, an extraordinary labor of love and hope that is destined to become indispensable in the continuing struggle for justice.»

John Burnside, author of A LIE ABOUT MY FATHER

«Instantly gripping... an ambitious and moving exploration of the border we draw around credible victimhood, and will cement Nayeri's position as a master story teller of the refugee experience»

Guardian

«Nayeri's mesmerizing, genre-bending book braids together narratives of asylum seekers, exonerated felons, and religious converts ... Heartbreaking and hopeful. Reading this book will upend your preconceptions about who is worthy of belief, as writing it did for Nayeri herself.»

Amanda Frost, author of YOU ARE NOT AMERICAN: CITIZENSHIP STRIPPING FROM DRED SCOTT TO THE DREAMERS

«An elegant telling of truth to power... published at a poignant moment»

Observer

«An important, courageous, brilliant book; an interrogation of "disbelief culture" and the injustice that both fuels it and is fuelled by it, a form-shifting memoir of an already-remarkable life, and a moving, harrowing investigation of love, loss and care.»

Robert Macfarlane, author of UNDERLAND
