The Angel of Grozny: Life Inside Chechnya

by Asne Seierstad, translated by Nadia Christensen
£9.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (2009)

The Angel of Grozny: Life Inside Chechnya by Asne Seierstad, translated by Nadia Christensen In the early hours of New Year's Eve 1994, Russian troops invaded the Republic of Chechnya, plunging the country into a prolonged and bloody conflict. Asne Seierstad reported regularly on the war, describing its effects on those trying to live their daily lives amidst the violence. In 2006 and 2007 she returned, travelling in secret, in constant danger. The tragedy of Chechnya had continued but the world had moved on. In a broken and devastated society she meets the orphans, the wounded, the lost - and tells their stories at last.

"The best book in English about one of the world's most brutal and under-reported conflicts... a fascinating, if often horrifying, read."
(Christina Lamb, Sunday Times)
"Extraordinary... A tenacious and compassionate reporter, Seierstad finds her way into the homes of Chechens and tells their stories... I was, on a number of occasions, reduced to tears."
