Reviews

One of the most important books to be published in Europe this year Independent Beautiful...expert...ends with a stunning final line that arrives with the force of desert scripture Guardian Remarkable...horrifying and genuinely illuminating...essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Iraq, but also an incredibly powerful piece of fiction The Times Intoxicating, utterly thrilling. It is not an apology for terrorism, but a provocative explanation that will bring the Iraqi experience in terrifying detail to western bedside tables. New Statesman A sad and important book Financial Times
