About the Author
Leila Rafei grew up in the Washington, DC area and lives in New York. Spring is her first novel.
"Leila Rafei's Spring is the all too timely tale of a world come rapidly and irreversibly undone. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Arab Spring, Rafei's elegant and unsparing debut novel of family and revolution is as essential as it is breathtaking."-- "Hannah Lillith Assadi, author of Sonora "
"Leila Rafei is a wondrous storyteller and a master of world-building. Her novel Spring tells the captivating tale of a family caught in the midst of a revolution that will profoundly change their relationship both to their country and to each other. I was immediately drawn to the novel much in the same way each character is enchanted by the Nile River, which winds through their lives and offers a hopeful glance into their losses, heartaches, and dreams. From the traveling American who demonstrates on Cairo's streets to the doting mother whose lemon grove thrives even as she is pained to witness her government fall, Rafei's gorgeous book is at once transporting and recognizable, both shocking and meditative, and replete with insight into how our dreams for our own lives are often mirrored in our dreams for the places we love."-- "Stephanie Jimenez, author of They Could Have Named Her Anything"
