Product Details


City of Sparrows brings to life the human, inside story of one of the most brutal sieges in recent history, with Syria’s Assad trying to break the will of young rebels daring to stand up to the dictator and taking refuge in an ancient city. The novel is as revealing as it is inspiring with its depictions of the lengths heroes will go to in search of personal freedom.” — Mark Sullivan, author of Beneath a Scarlet Sky

“An absolutely riveting novel . . . a rare and precious humanizing of the terrible conflagration in Syria. Eva is a writer of the first order and this is a searing and incredibly important book, storytelling at its best.” — Donal Ryan, author of All We Shall Know

“It’s been a long time since a book kept me up all night, but City of Sparrows did. A tender, yet wild and tangible testimony bearing witness to the tragedy in Syria.” — Theodor Kallifatides, author of The Siege of Troy: A Novel

“An artistically flawless novel, written as an act of protest, but also as a poetic declaration of love.” — Svenska Dagbladet

City of Sparrows is a study in survival and a portrayal of the utter hell of the Syrian war. The novel reveals what can never be told by the news reports.” — Landskrona Posten
