Now a major Amazon Prime Video series starring Alec Baldwin and Jeff Daniels.
Lawrence Wright is a staff writer for the New Yorker and a fellow at the Center on Law and Security at New York University School of Law. He has won several awards for his journalism. He is the author of Twins and Remembering Satan, and the co-writer of the movie The Siege.
Wright's brilliantly constructed narrative is head and shoulders
above the rest. He knows important parts of the Muslim world
(including Saudi Arabia) at first hand, he understands the motors
of Islamist militancy ... Moreover, he is a fine writer with an eye
for the telling detail. Even those who think they know the story
intimately will feel they are reading it anew * New Statesman *
One of the best and most important books of recent years. A masterful combination of reporting and writing -- Dan Rather
Lawrence Wright's integrity and diligence as a reporter shine through every page of this riveting narrative -- Robert Caro
