About the Author

YASMINA KHADRA is the pen name of the former Algerian army officer Mohammed Moulessehoul. He adopted his wife's name as a pseudonym to avoid military censorship. He is the author of more than 20 books, at least six of which have been published in English, among them The Swallows of Kabul and The Attack, both shortlisted for the IMPAC literary award. Khadra's work has been published in 45 countries. He has twice been honored by the Académie française, winning both the Médaille de vermeil (2001) and Grand Prix de littérature (2012). His latest novel is The Angels Die (2016). He lives in France. The New York Times describes Khadra as, "a writer who can understand man wherever he is."

Reviews

"Compelling. . . . Khadra brings us deep into the hearts and minds of people living in unspeakable mental anguish." --Los Angeles Times


"Khadra's work has been compared to that of his Algerian compatriot Albert Camus, and The Sirens of Baghdad has a similar blaze of heat, the same heavy, insoluble questions. . . . The novel builds to a startling and wrenching finish." --San Francisco Chronicle


"Nerve-wracking. . . . A blunt story line that has real passion behind it. The author's ear for Iraqi despair, fury and violation is keen." --The New York Times
