Reviews
With unflinching realism and complicated, captivating characters, Steavenson tackles the turbulent realities of the war against terror.
This ultimately engrossing insider's view of complicated geopolitics and conflicted identity doesn't condescend to the reader, offering no simple pieties as it upends stereotypes.
Fascinating.--Louise Doughty
Accomplished and deftly plotted.--Benjamin Balint
[A] very fine novel. Deeply informed by the author's experiences as a journalist but triumphantly transmuted into intelligent and heartfelt fiction.
[An] expansive debut novel.... Powerfully merges the personal and the political.
Paris Metro is a love story between a Western journalist and an Iraqi diplomat that raises the biggest questions about war, religion, and the complicated relationship between the West and the Arab world. Wendell Steavenson has beautifully drawn vivid and convincing characters who will live forever in your imagination. It's not just a good novel, it is a significant piece of our life.--Alaa Al Aswany, author of The Yacoubian Building
