Reviews

This book makes a sound, and it should be a loud one. It is not for the faint-hearted, but they should read it anyway. We should all read it, if only to bear witness to an atrocity that happened on our watch, and that we cannot simply sweep away as concerning a faraway people of whose faith we know little. -- 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 *
His story is worthy of being made into a film, his resourcefulness and everyman heroism carrying shades of Oskar Schindler...[Mikahil] attempts to rehumanise a war that has been reported on so often from an aerial, abstracted viewpoint. She takes us back to the ground - to all the terrible, fragile, human detail, so that its victims and survivors can be seen as they are, made painfully of flesh and blood -- Arifa Akbar * Guardian *
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 * 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 *
Praise for Dunya Mikhail: Mikhail's style maintains an impressive fragility and delicacy of image that touches the reader's heart... * American Poetry Review *
