"A beautiful text, a testimony of the time of mud and blood that besieges Iraq and the Arab East . . . in very moving language, this Iraqi novelist writes his country with the ink of pain."--Elias Khoury, author of Gate of the Sun
"A novel about Iraqi agony. Iraq's history is condensed and elegantly portrayed."--Al-Jazeera
"Shines a valuable light on conflict that has been triggered from wrongheaded political decisions"--The National
"[A] panoramic view of Iraq, its history, its iconography and its bitter present. . . Antoon is fast becoming not only the voice of disaffection of modern Iraq, but one of the most acclaimed authors of the Arab world."--Al-Ahram Weekly
"The first novel to broach the tragedy of Iraqi Christians. . . narrating Iraq's wounds in a beautiful language."--as-Safir
"Maia Tabet's skilled translation gives Anglophone readers access to a brutal yet beautiful novel which offers two striking takes on one city from members of an Iraqi Christian family. . . . The Baghdad Eucharist is a short read but one that lingers long in the mind . . . Antoon entrances with both his lavish set-pieces and tight thumbnail sketches. [He] has crafted a novel of rare brilliance which highlights the divisions within a family and their struggles within their city."--Malcolm Forbes, The National
