Product description


"[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

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading 8 May 2017
By ashmw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
