Beware: Shameless Plug


It’s been fun and painful in equal measures. At some stage I’ll post more fully on writing a book – well this particular book – but for now it’s enough to say that the whole thing is pretty much done, apart from the promotion stuff which I hope will be the best bit.

Along the way I’ve picked up some kind words from people whose work on Darfur and Africa I really respect. So in the next few weeks, ahead of UK publication in Ferbruary, I’m going to shamelessly plug my book… Starting with Richard Dowden, director of the Royal African Society.

Crilly takes you to Darfur, into a vast landscape of heat and dust and horrific war. But as he leads you from plains to mountains and into camps and villages, all your preconceptions are turned upside down by the fiendish complexity of this war. This books peels off the labels that have been stuck on Darfur by outsiders and exposes the stubborn realities beneath the surface

  1. I think between you and Kieren McCarthy, who blogged his whole book writing story – – you’ve both put me off ever attempting to write a book.

    Very well done on all the praise. Well deserved. Looking forward to book making it to Kigali… sometime.
