"[Antoon] faithfully reproduces the difficult conversations between an Iraqi Christian family housed in Baghdad while the daily scenes of carnage are painfully recounted."--The Guardian
"A beautiful text, a testimony of the time of mud and blood that besieges Iraq and the Arab East . . . in very moving language, this Iraqi novelist writes his country with the ink of pain."--Elias Khoury, author of Gate of the Sun
"A novel about Iraqi agony. Iraq's history is condensed and elegantly portrayed."--Al-Jazeera
"Shines a valuable light on conflict that has been triggered from wrongheaded political decisions"--The National

A very fine novel
on 8 July 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
It is virtually impossible for an outsider to grasp the emotions and choices faced by Christians in Baghdad. I was greatly touched by this novel.

This is an incredible read about life in Baghdad, and should honestly be required reading for anyone who either 1) supported the war in Iraq or 2) supports a ban on refugees. It is also a useful challenge to the common narrative of "sectarian violence" or politics that we often find ourselves falling back to when discussing Iraq.
