A gripping novel from right inside a civil war,

This review is from: De Niro's Game (Paperback)
Few novels have left such a lasting impact as this one. One is not likely to feel like reading a novel about the Lebanese civil war written by a participant in the madness (especially as the title of the book is somewhat offputting I think), but such is the extraordinary power of the prose, and the intensity of the images, this one grips and keeps you reading in wonder. There are few books which so successfully communicate the sheer idiocy of civil war, or the power it holds over those caught up in it. Leaves you drained and exhausted, but aware you have read a great book.
