Reviews

"Live from Cairo is a powerful novel about human lives running up against inhuman systems: an impotent bureaucracy, a corrupt government, a brutal military. It's a story of triumphant love and heartbreaking injustice, a story about how difficult the world makes it for any one person to do the right thing. Ian Bassingthwaighte has written an important and necessary book."--Nathan Hill, New York Times bestselling author of The Nix
"Ian Bassingthwaite's Live From Cairo is, as the title suggests, a living, animate, remarkable novel written with an energy rarely found in debut novels. With its sweeping eye for sizzling detail, this portrait of wanderers from different lands in a troubled Middle East is urgent and fiercely engaging."--Chigozie Obioma, Booker Shortlisted author of The Fishermen
"Urgent, informed, and richly detailed... [A] suspenseful, bittersweet narrative... Absorbing and important reading."--Library Journal, starred review
