Reviews
"Ciezadlo's lovely, natural language succeeds where news reports often fail: She leads us to care."
--The Oregonian
"Her book is full of more insight and joy than anything else I have read on Iraq. . . . Ciezadlo is a wonderful traveling companion. Her observations are delightful -- witty, intelligent and nonjudgmental."
--The Washington Post Book World
"Her writing about food is both evocative and loving; this is a woman who clearly enjoys a meal... A glass of Iraqi tea, under Ciezadlo's gaze, is a thing of beauty."
--The Associated Press
"In her extraordinary debut, Annia Ciezadlo turns food into a language, a set of signs and connections, that helps tie together a complex moving memoir of the Middle East."
--The Globe and Mail
