Praise

“Madrygin’s harrowing, compelling debut will live long in the reader’s memory. . . A timely novel that introduces a writer of huge ambition, The Solace of Trees is deeply informative and moving, and it will spark debates regarding American foreign policy.” — Booklist

“With the soul of a humanist and the prose of a poet, Robert Madrygin takes us into the heart of the darkness that comes from ‘otherizing.’ Whether in the context of the Bosnian genocide or the global War on Terror, Madrygin challenges us to find a common humanity in the midst of the most inhumane of times.” — Dr. James Waller, author of Becoming Evil: How Ordinary People Commit Genocide and Mass Killing, Cohen Professor of Holocaust & Genocide Studies, Keene State College

“Robert Madrygin’s devastating debut novel tells the story of a Bosnian Muslim war orphan given a second chance in America only to be caught up in the madness of the US-led global War on Terror. If this book doesn’t dispel the myth of American exceptionalism, nothing will.”  — L. E. Randolph, author of the novel Haven’s Wake and editor-in-chief of Ploughshares

“The Solace of Trees tells the story of a child’s ability to survive the unspeakable trauma of war with grace and resilience, and how these very skills become necessary once again as an adult. It is a story of human cruelty delivered by opposite forces, and of the power of the individual to make a difference each time.” — Patricia Whalen, former international judge of the War Crimes Chamber at the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina
