Reviews

[A] hell of a story... Pavlov is an irresistible lead: stony, well-read, tightly controlled, with a deep well of sadness. Call him Harry Bosch but in Lebanon.--Nathan Deuel
Hallucinatory... [A] faceted meditation on existentialism.--Sam Sacks
Potent... Hage's novel is a brisk, surreal, and often comic plunge into surviving the absurd nihilism of war.
Beirut Hellfire Society crackles with the kinetic energy of a dancer...The absurd volume of deaths is also tempered by Hage's signature dark humor and stylistic playfulness.
