Reviews

"A work of impassioned reportage, a sympathetic observer's damage assessment of a country torn apart by warlords, religious fanatics, and ill-advised superpower conflicts dating back more than a century . . . Eloquent and persuasive." --The New York Times

"[A] potent and disturbing new book." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Often I felt a desire to thank Jones for shining a flashlight on a corner of human experience still so shrouded in shadow." --The Christian Science Monitor

"We meet many remarkable people in this angry, eloquent book, but none more remarkable than Jones herself." --Harper's

"[An] illuminating and complex book." --Entertainment Weekly

"Jones's book gathers power as it goes on . . . and some of her descriptions approach poetry." --The Washington Post

"Chilling . . . Jones's impressions are vividly rendered. . . . This achingly candid commentary brings the country's sobering truths to light." --Booklist

"Jones focuses particularly on Afghan women, whose lives are often permeated by violence. Her sharp eye and quick wit enable vivid writing." --Publishers Weekly

"A passionate--often grim--account of a country and a people trying to find peace after decades of war." --Kirkus Reviews
