Praise

“A stunning accomplishment…A vivid account of an elusive piece of recent history”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Informed, intelligent…vital, original. ”
The New York Times

“Deeply moving…at once a beautifully rendered story of one woman’s coming of age, and a gripping portrait of the last days of British rule. ”
Boston Globe

“Ms. Grant’s fast-paced novel succeeds on many levels. It recreates the historical era accurately with sophisicated prose and lively jests about the human condition.”
Dallas Morning News

“Appealing…[When I Lived in Modern Times] offers an unsentimental view of a young woman’s coming-of-age in a paradoxically ancient and newborn land. [A] compelling tale of a Middle Eastern adventure.”
US Weekly
