Product description


It is not for the faint-hearted, but they should read it anyway. We should all read it. (Peter Stanford Observer)

Remarkable ... With this short book, the tragedies and the heroism of this time of horror will survive intact. (Louise Callaghan Sunday Times)

Rare and powerful ... Mikhail has created a searing portrait of courage, humanity and savagery, told in a mosaic of voices. ... [her] gifts as a poet infuse these narratives with unexpected beauty (The New York Times)

Mikhail bears witness to women in war-torn Iraq, women who have scarcely known peace throughout their lives. That she is a poet is clear on each page. (Kirkus Reviews)
