Product Details


“Compelling. . . . Khadra brings us deep into the hearts and minds of people living in unspeakable mental anguish.” —Los Angeles Times

“Khadra’s work has been compared to that of his Algerian compatriot Albert Camus, and The Sirens of Baghdad has a similar blaze of heat, the same heavy, insoluble questions. . . . The novel builds to a startling and wrenching finish.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Nerve-wracking. . . . A blunt story line that has real passion behind it. The author’s ear for Iraqi despair, fury and violation is keen.” —The New York Times
