Reviews

"Powerful and moving...bears comparison with George Orwell's Homage To Catalonia as a work of literature, Yazbek is a superb narrator...it may be that [she] has written one of the first political classics of the 21st century" * Observer *
"Brave, rebellious and passionate...Yazbek is no ordinary Syrian dissident" * Financial Times *
"An eloquent, gripping and harrowing account of the country's decline into barbarism by an incredibly brave Syrian" * Irish Times *
"Gripping... Does the important job of putting faces to the numbing numbers of Syria's crisis..." * Economist *
"Sheds valuable light on day-to-day life inside Syria, something of which we know little...a sobering glimpse of the wreckage that will be discovered when the war is over" * Sunday Times *
