"Embrace on Brooklyn Bridge is a remarkable novel for its style, its plot, and its reach into the experience of straddling two worlds and two states of being."--Banipal
"Ezzedine Choukri Fishere . . . taking his literary career to new heights."--Egypt Independent
"A beautiful, unique novel."--Gamal al-Ghitani, author of Zayni Barakat
"A deeper view of the world of Arabs abroad . . . [Embrace on Brooklyn Bridge] represents the symbol of Arab immigrants without carrying their usual stereotypical qualities ... Fishere offers no simple solutions to his characters and doesn't try to preach in one way or another, but rather to flash a light on a different dimension and let his heroes do the talking."--Al-Ahram Online
"Fishere's method movingly teases out the spaces between belonging and forced, awkward fits, and the result is certain to endure in the reader's consciousness . . . . [Embrace on Brooklyn Bridge] is "Mrs. Dalloway" for an age when conversations about immigration, particularly from Arab nations, dominate--a gripping portrait of the tenuous spaces that marginalized populations are made to occupy, and a searing examination of the struggle to belong."--Foreword Reviews
