Douglas Rogers is an award-winning journalist and travel writer. He was born and raised in Zimbabwe and now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
"This book is a smasher. The opening movements are possibly the
hottest non-fiction I have ever read. The fall of Robert Mugabe was
orchestrated from Johannesburg? Douglas Rogers has to be kidding.
But he isn't." Rian Malan
"Two Weeks in November is Ocean's 11 meets Game of Thrones: a real-world life or death chess match for the future of a country where the political endgame is never a foregone conclusion." Justin Webb "Reads like a thriller... Comic and terrifying... Rogers's poweful account is told with dark humour, political understanding and narrative flair." The Times (London)
"A gripping tale of the coup/not-a-coup that toppled Mugabe... incredible insight. I know far more now about what was going on behind the scenes while I was filming in Harare in 2017." - Lindsay Hilsum, International Editor, Channel 4 News
PRAISE FOR THE LAST RESORT:
"This vibrant, tragic and surprisingly funny book is the best account yet of ordinary life - for blacks and whites - under Mugabe's dictatorship." New York Times
"A gorgeous, open-hearted book. Rogers manages to do the vital work of taking race out of Zimbabwe's story and putting the heart and humanity back into it. A must read for anyone who really wants to understand the extraordinary decency of ordinary Zimbabweans." Alexandra Fuller, author of Don't Let's go to the Dogs Tonight
