‘One of the most important women novelists in Lebanon [. . .] Rich with everyday detail, Sobh’s work is not only an illumination of an important period at a new scale but also a unique meditation on the nature of storytelling.’ —Arab Weekly
‘Sobh is an author of remarkable skill and range. She elegantly strings together a love for writing and incisive observations of society’s restrictions on women. The stories told inside this novel traverse an equally diverse range of topics from love, female friendship, loss, and survival. Sobh’s language effortlessly delivers and engages the reader in the varied emotions carried by these topics as it billows and patters and spirals just like the country she describes.’ —World Literature Today
