|Editorial Review||"Six pages into this book, I said to myself, if Anthony Shadid continues like this, this book will be a classic. And page by page, he did continue, and he wrote a honest-to-God, hands-down, undeniable and instant classic. This is a book about war, and terrible loss, and a troubled region, and his own tattered family history, yes, but it s written with the kind of levity and candor and lyricism we associate with, say, Junot Diaz and that makes the book, improbably, both a compulsive read and one you don t want to end. I have no idea how Shadid pulled all this off while talking about the history of modern Lebanon, how he balanced ribald humour and great warmth with the sorrow woven into a story like this, but anyway, we should all be grateful that he did." --Dave Eggers, author of Zeitoun and What Is the What "Anthony Shadid s beautifully rendered memoir is a rich account of a man s gradual immersion into the world of the Middle East and the culture of the Levant, a kingdom almost unrecognizable today, where the rooms and hallways of his great-grandfather s house tell stories that will linger with every reader for decades." --André Aciman, author of Out of Egypt|
