Reviews

[A] beautifully imagined and timely novel.
A story that unfolds beautifully, as lightly and naturally as a roll of silk.
[A] lovely tale...an urgent mix of Scheherazade-style storytelling and treatise on the loneliness of exile.--Andrea Spencer
Abu-Jaber is a high-spirited, magnificently graceful storyteller, a poet of deliciously fluted fiction, character, and culture.--Naomi Shihab Nye
A powerful story about the loneliness of exile and the limits of love. An impressive second outing by Abu-Jaber.
It is a story about how to cook and how to eat, and how to live in the new country. And, like all good novels, it is about how to tell a story.--Sigrid Nunez
Wise, spirited, and evocative.
Gorgeously written and deeply imagined, this novel is both a fable and a plea--a book that weaves a hypnotic, lasting spell.--Beth Kephart
Crescent is a rich, delicious concoction that has you rooting for the star-crossed lovers.--John Muncie
