Recensioner i media

JP O' Malley, Books of the Year 2018, The Irish Independent I've a soft spot for this stylish gonzo-like first person narrative voice that Walker uses to great effect.

Oliver Bullough, The Observer The Long Hangover is considered and careful and humane, and should be compulsory reading for any politician considering engagement with either Moscow or Ukraine. It's not only the best book I've read on Putin's Russia, but also has great resonance for the age of Donald Trump and Brexit: no one likes being told they're a loser, everyone needs something to believe in.

Eamon Delaney, Irish Independent [Walker] does an excellent job and ... keeps his narrative relatively short in a gripping and clear-sighted way.

Jonathan Steele, The Guardian [Walker] is more successful than most of his western journalistic competitors in exploring the often contradictory attitudes that Russians hold towards their president and the hybrid system he is building on the basis of Russian nationalism, Soviet nostalgia and a striving for international respect.

Oliver Bullough, Prospect [Walker] looks at the Russia that Putin has created in minute and humane detail ... He does so through intimate conversations with Russians (and others) who have been affected by the way Putin has run his country, and creates composite images of a nation traumatised by its Soviet history but unable or unwilling to face that past.

Linda Kinstler, Times Literary Supplement the best history of the ideologies and politics behind the headlines ... Walker's meticulous documentation of the annexation of Crimea and the subsequent occupation of Ukraine makes this exemplary political history, but The Long Hangover will be remembered, and re-read, as a history of memory.

Ruadhn Mac Cormaic, Irish Times [An] excellent, acutely observed book

Kieran Pender, Australian Book Review It is hard to find fault in such a spectacular book, which deftly weaves personal narratives with grand geopolitical tensions to produce a compelling read ... a real tour de force of book-length reporting.

Matthew Janney, Culture Trip It is ... [the] passages - so charged with personality whilst remaining politically astute that make Walkers prose so compelling to read. He takes the singular melody we trumpet about Russia in the West and adds harmony, dynamics, colour and context. Read this book and you will have a more nuanced understanding of the dissonant symphonies emanating from the east.

Angela Stent, Survival lively and engrossing

Angus Roxburgh, CABLE Magazine a superb book

William Armstrong, Hurriyet Daily News The Long Hangover thankfully does not fixate on the character of Putin. Instead, it focuses on the social conditions that he taps into (and manipulates). The book is girded by Walker's vivid reporting from every corner of the country - far more valuable than armchair analyzing. It also refrains from offering any easy or sweeping answers.
