RaveThe Guardian (UK)The book is instantly gripping ... Her frustration and anger light up the page as she makes formidable arguments for justice ... It’s hard to categorise Who Gets Believed; it is part memoir, part reportage, part criticism ... There are some philosophical meditations, particularly in its final act, which feel distracting and interfere with pacing. Even so, the book remains an ambitious and moving exploration of the borders we draw around credible victimhood, and will cement Nayeri’s position as a master storyteller of the refugee experience.
RaveThe Guardian (UK)A rallying cry for the transformative power of writing; not only to help us make sense of our place in the world... but to lend us the imagination and courage to change it ... Characterised by a fierce urgency.
