About the Author
"Informed, intelligent...vital, original. "
-The New York Times
"Deeply moving...at once a beautifully rendered story of one woman's coming of age, and a gripping portrait of the last days of British rule. "
"Ms. Grant's fast-paced novel succeeds on many levels. It recreates the historical era accurately with sophisicated prose and lively jests about the human condition."
-Dallas Morning News
"Appealing...[When I Lived in Modern Times] offers an unsentimental view of a young woman's coming-of-age in a paradoxically ancient and newborn land. [A] compelling tale of a Middle Eastern adventure."
