About the Author

He has won the Prix Goncourt for his novel The Rock of Tanios, and the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature.
Barbara Bray has twice won the Scott Moncrief Prize for her translations, as well as the French-American Foundation Prize. She has collaborated with Harold Pinter and Joseph Losey on a film adaptation of Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu. She passed away in 2010.

Reviews

Makes for compelling reading in America today. ("The New York Times") This...polemic...confirms that...the mass murder of September 11, while indelibly shocking, is not wholly surprising. (Todd Gitlin, "Los Angeles Times")
Speaks from the depth of a powerful intellect.
Maalouf is a thoughtful, humane and passionate interlocutor.
