George Alagiah – The Burning Land
George Alagiah is presenter of BBC News at Six, Britain’s most watched news programme. That role followed ten years as a foreign correspondent which included covering the 9/11 attacks and the genocide in Rwanda. The Burning Land is his exhilarating debut novel – a sharp and nuanced thriller set in post-apartheid South Africa dealing with themes of political activism, xenophobia, the environment and globalism.
“An optimistic book suffused with Alagiah’s outraged humanity” Observer
