"Mandour’s third novel, the first to be translated into English, presents an enjoyable slice of life in the Lebanese capital....On the whole it flows well and is often wryly funny."—Hurriyet Daily News

"A fast– and quite well-paced slice-of-lives novel, shifting between fast, chatty dialogue and more introspective reflection, and covering a good amount of ground."—the Complete Review

"32 is a fascinating page-turner; universal in its coming of age anxieties and everyday activities of a young woman and her friends, and yet specific to post-war Beirut in context, ambiance and sensitivity."—Nadje Al-Ali, author of What Kind of Liberation? Women and the Occupation of Iraq

"Sahar Mandour is the voice of Beirut. She captures its wistful contradictions. 32 is a Beiruti novel. Such joy, such sorrow, but more than anything, such wonderful characters."—Vijay Prashad, George and Martha Kellner Chair in South Asian History at Trinity College and author of The Karma of Brown Folk
