The memoir of a young Afghan-American woman's perilous and moving journey from nervous interpreter to intrepid cultural advisor in an unforgettable story and rare glimpse into the Afghan people and U.S. involvement.
"In vibrant but understated prose, Wahab vividly portrays a misunderstood culture, as well as the tense life on military bases where everyone must wear body armor and carry a weapon. While fighting to build a bridge of understanding between her 'native and adoptive nations, ' Wahab admirably wages a more universal war--for gender equality, human rights, and peace."
--"Publisher's Weekly" (starred review)
"Extraordinary....detailed, lively...A carefully wrought work that allows a rare look inside Pashtun culture."
