‘For two days, Gaddafi’s soldiers were surrounding the city.We carried on as normal, because there was nothing else to do.’

Toss of a Coin is full of quotes like this, using first hand accounts to give an insight into the Arab Spring and its aftermath like no other. Rory O’Keeffe not only writes about the Uprising but also Libya’s desperate and largely unsuccessful attempts to move forward afterwards. It is an at times uncomfortable yet thrilling experience, and one which deserves to be read.

Highly recommended.
