Making History


 

"Wright is a historian, one of a very few

who can draw the drama out of past events

without sacrificing authenticity and integrity."

 

Barbara McDougall

Canadian Secretary of State

for External Affairs 1991-3

 

 

"When it appeared, I bought and read a copy

of Our Man in Tehran.  After seeing the movie

at the Sudbury Film Festival, I read it again.  

It really is a masterpiece."
