'It is a sign of Ms Churchill's success that, without rubbing in any parallels, her version constantly prompts thoughts… of the ethi of revenge, of the latest reports from Rwanda, of what has happened in its time on all five continents' – Sunday Telegraph
'The effect is cold-bloodedly illuminating' – Independent on Sunday
