"Terribly poignant" Times Literary Supplement "Novel, short story, fable? - it doesn't matter. This short book has a sadness that breaks your heart and a visual beauty shot through with the horror of war. Every word, every tear, every gesture is significant" Nouvel Observateur "Dense, provocative and, most of all revelatory" -- Claire Allfree Metro "A hallucinatory, tragic cry of despair" Le Monde "With this novel Rahimi picks up a shard of broken glass and sees the whole truth of his devastated country" Der Spiegel

Extraordinary."--"La Marseillaise" (France) "A hallucinatory, tragic cry of despair."--"Le Monde" (France)
