Product description

Review

A New York Times Editors' Choice

"This devastating memoir unflinchingly recounts Murad's experiences and questions the complicity of witnesses who acquiesced in the suffering of others." --The New Yorker

"Her book is sobering--and an inspiration." --People

"A harrowing memoir. . . . Intricate in historical context. . . . The Last Girl leaves readers with urgent, incendiary questions." --The New York Times Book Review

"Murad gives us a window on the atrocities that destroyed her family and nearly wiped out her vulnerable community. This is a courageous memoir that serves as an important step toward holding to account those who committed horrific crimes." --The Washington Post

"This is likely the most inspiring feminist memoir out this year." --Bustle

"Nadia Murad's courageous account is horrific and essential reading. . . . Anyone who wants to understand the so-called Islamic State should read The Last Girl." --The Economist

"Fascinating." --Vulture

"Surpassingly valuable. . . . With her new book, The Last Girl, Nadia Murad has assumed the stature of an Elie Wiesel for her people. . . . As much as it is an account of the Yazidi genocide, the book is also a loving ode to a way of life that has now been all but obliterated." --Jewish Journal

"A harrowing and brave book, a testament to human resilience." --The Progressive

"A devastating yet ultimately inspiring memoir that doubles as an urgent call to action." --Kirkus

"Brilliant and intense. . . . a clear-eyed account of ISIS's cruelty." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Powerful. . . . A heartbreaking elegy to a lost community." --Booklist

About the Author

Nadia Murad is a human rights activist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. She is the recipient of the Vaclav Havel Human Rights Prize and the Sakharov Prize, and is the UN's first Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking. Together with Yazda, a Yazidi rights organization, she is currently working to bring the Islamic State before the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity. She is also the founder of Nadia's Initiative, a program dedicated to helping survivors of genocide and human trafficking to heal and rebuild their communities.

Amal Clooney is a barrister practicing at Doughty Street Chambers in London who specializes in international law and human rights. She is also a Visiting Professor at Columbia Law School. Clooney is currently legal counsel to Nadia Murad and other Yazidi women who have been sexually enslaved by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and is working to secure accountability for the crimes committed by ISIS in national and international courts.
