Reviews

"A powerful and expansive story of love, resistance, and the search for freedom. Abulhawa's characters are raw, unapologetic, and unforgettable."--Saleem Haddad, author of Guapa
"A thrilling, defiant novel. Abulhawa's latest novel reads as a riot act against oppression, misogyny, and shame."--Fatima Bhutto, author of The Runaways
"Against the Loveless World is a masterpiece! As she does with every book, Susan Abulhawa paints stunningly beautiful and humanizing images of Palestinian women as they navigate the violence of settler-colonial oppression with dignity and agency. With this novel, she also forces us to wrestle with the complexities of love, freedom, struggle, and shame in ways that both inspire and challenge our very conceptions of what it means to be human. This is a major literary contribution that further cements Abulhawa's status as one of the most important writers of our generation."--Marc Lamont Hill, award-winning author of Nobody
"Nahr is a wonderful creation, strong-willed, passionate, unapologetic, and adventurous. Her refusal to accept the subordination expected of her propels the story at a thrilling pace. Her determination to find love in a loveless world and her unquenchable spirit in adversity shines a ray of hope into some very dark places."--Michael Palin, actor and philanthropist
