Praise

"Often reads like a taut, tense thriller… a thought-provoking read as well as an absorbing look into a culture and a people in extreme circumstances." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Politically courageous and often gripping… Crossbones provides a sophisticated introduction to present-day Somalia, and to the circle of poverty and violence that continues to blight the country." –The New York Times Book Review

"Mesmerizing… A searing look at individuals caught in the chaos of anarchy." –The Daily Beast (Hot Reads)

"Harrowing without resorting to sensationalism, this highly topical final volume in Farahs’s Past Imperfect trilogy should burnish his well-deserved reputation. It is dense, complex stuff, but his brave and imperfect characters are a pleasure to follow. [A] gripping but utterly humane thriller set in one of the least understood regions on earth." –Kirkus Reviews

"Farah writes enthrallingly about his native Somalia… Expect sharp insight into both human nature and secretarian strife, told in illuminating language free of cant." –Library Journal

"[Farah] writes beautifully and prolifically about his native Somalia." –TheMillions.com
