Some brief overview of book

"This is a triumph of a book surprising, informative, and humane." Alexander McCall Smith "Stunning." Foreign Affairs "Pieces together Nur's astonishing biography and follows him when he became mayor in 2010 and tried to restore confidence and bring back investment to the battered Somali capital." NPR "Part on-the-ground war reporting, part investigative biography, Hardings book captures both the fragile hopes and the appalling violence of Somalia . . .

." The New York Times **A Foreign Affairs Best Book of 2017** **One of Book Concierge's Best Books of 2016** In The Mayor of Mogadishu, one of the BBCs most experienced foreign correspondents, Andrew Harding, reveals the tumultuous life of Mohamoud "Tarzan" Nur - an impoverished nomad who was abandoned in a state orphanage in newly independent Somalia, and became a street brawler and activist. When the country collapsed into civil war and anarchy, Tarzan and his young family became part of an exodus, eventually spending twenty years in north London. But in 2010 Tarzan returned, as Mayor, to the unrecognizable ruins of a city now almost entirely controlled by the Islamist militants of Al Shabab.

For many in Mogadishu, and in the diaspora, Tarzan became a galvanizing symbol of courage and hope for Somalia. But for others, he was a divisive thug, who sank beneath the corruption and clan rivalries that continue, today, to threaten the countrys revival. The Mayor of Mogadishu is a rare an insiders account of Somalias unraveling, and an intimate portrayal of one familys extraordinary journey.
