About the Author

SAIMA WAHAB was born in Afghanistan, went to Pakistan as a refugee, and moved to the United States as a teenager. Since then she has become one of the only Pashtun female translators in the world, and--among other consequent roles--has returned to Afghanistan several times to work as a cultural adviser with the U.S. Army. She lives in Washington, D.C.

Reviews

"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."--"Kirkus Reviews"
