Freedom at 4AM is a true-life tale of cultural clash in Afghanistan: from the political to the personal. Set against a backdrop of history, geopolitics, religion and misadventure this immersive story climaxes with an unlikely call to prayer under life-threatening circumstances…
“A powerful, sharply observed story of Marc Perry’s experience working for an NGO in Kabul. He vividly conveys the underbelly of seediness and corruption of internationals; working in the shadows of violence, and death. Very readable – once the reader started, difficult to put down”.
Donald Reeves MBE
I was honoured to be one of the first people to own a copy and to read it. It was compelling, terrifying, eye-opening and heart-breaking. I’m extremely proud to know and to have worked with such a talented and brave journalist.
An unblinking view of the subculture of NGO/foreign occupation in Afghanistan that comes across as …unhealthy; you give a vivid picture of the damage and degradation that is the Afghanistan of today; you convey a sympathetic sensitivity to the horror of what’s been done to Afghans.
Author of West of Kabul East of New York
“Freedom at 4am offers a great insight into what it’s truly like to be on the ground in modern-day Kabul, while at the same time keeping an eye on the historical context, especially how the region’s turbulent past has a habit of repeating itself. A real page turner.”
