BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SKY

My first book, a narrative non-fiction account of my time living in Baghdad, was shortlisted for the Western Australian Literary Awards in 2008. Here's what some of the critics had to say:

"The paranoia and stress of living in a corrupt country, where the population is oppressed by a tyrannical regime and persecuted by its secret service are palpable. A compelling read.” - Sydney Morning Herald

 
"The outstanding quality of the writing and the insights Wilkinson provides into the war in Iraq, and the competitive world of the news media, give it a unique edge." - The Mercury 

"Well written, sensitive and thoughtful. It’s an insider's account of Iraq at a pivotal time in history. A great read." - The Walkley Magazine

 

"Refreshing and intimate…it adds authenticity and realism.” - The Sunday Times 

 

“A fascinating tell-all book, what incredible, searing honesty.”  - Australian Broadcasting Corporation
