  • Jonny Steinberg has come to define South African narrative non-fiction; now, in Little Liberia, he applies his prodigious talents globally. He is at the height of his powers, singular in his ability to tell a big story through vivid detail and unforgettable characters. He has one of the sharpest intellects of his generation; here he proves, once more, that he is also a masterful storyteller.

  • Extraordinary, stylistically varied mix of reportage, history and biography, which is revealing about the author as well as about his subjects, and about the vagaries of memory and motive... Maps, photographs, notes, a list of further reading, as well as a thorough index, all provide useful support for his skilled and compassionate chronicle

  • Steinberg has produced a juicy cocktail of reportage, biography and history that's compelling, shocking and totally engaging. It's storytelling at its expansive best... What appears on the surface to be a history of Liberia turns out to be a compelling story of memory, exile and loss: themes we can all relate to
