About the Author
Riverbend is the pseudonym of an Iraqi computer programmer who now lives with her family in Baghdad and whose identity remains concealed for her own protection. Her blog offers searing eyewitness accounts of the everyday realities on the ground, punctuated by astute analysis on the politics behind the events.
Reviews
"Reports from 'Ground Zero' in Baghdad by the award-winning and 'Thoughtful writer whose . . . prose packs an emotional punch'." --The New York Times

"Riverbend's musings will make it impossible for readers to hold on to some cardboard cutout notion of 'an Iraqi'. . . . Bracing, and sure to be controversial, this is a unique and essential record of our times." --Kirkus Reviews

"[Riverbend's] writing is crisp and lucid, a style one would expect from an educated cosmopolitan woman... and as such it is both personal and political... Riverbend translates the sterile language of policymakers into the flesh and blood reality of fearful citizens... We need to read Riverbend." --National Catholic Reporter
