Product description

Review


"[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] panoramic view of Iraq, its history, its iconography and its bitter present. . . Antoon is fast becoming not only the voice of disaffection of modern Iraq, but one of the most acclaimed authors of the Arab world."--Al-Ahram Weekly


"The first novel to broach the tragedy of Iraqi Christians. . . narrating Iraq's wounds in a beautiful language." --as-Safir
