"A novel that grapples with the most ethical of questions: not only ‘who am I,’ but also ‘what are my obligations to others?’. . . . The reader must tease the significance out, often with great effort. But the reward is definitely worth the effort."—Terri DeYoung, author of Placing the Poet: Badr Shakir alSayyab and Postcolonial Iraq
