''Without any taboos or limits Barakat depicts here the return to life after war with a remarkable freedom of tone and evocative power… The strangest thing is that upon finishing the book, one has the feeling of being caught in the net of a work that is suffocating but enthralling, which fascinates with the resplendence of its images and the clarity of its vision.'' --Le Monde Diplomatique
