Reviews

A memoir of resistance and survival unique in the annals of modern war ... If the shedding of blood can be beautiful in words, he makes it so * Wall Street Journal *
An account of oppression, war, survival and escape as the world ignored what was going on. A touching tale, this humanises the story of war when often all we want to do is look away * Metro, The best new books by BME authors you'll be reading this year *
At last, here is the first wave of books written by Syrians not about their escape to Europe as refugees from the war but about their lives inside the country ... What emerges is a remarkably unified picture of the realities of life since 1970 in the Syria of the Assads ... shows, unambiguously, precisely what the Assad government seek to conceal * Times Literary Supplement *
Powerful ... Tightly-focused ... A first-person, eyewitness account written with alternating love and fury * Prospect *
