Reviews

"Brilliant, sensational and heartbreaking, The Arab of the Future 4 hits all the high and low notes without skipping a beat, setting up a thrilling conclusion to the series."
--Comics Beat

"Struck through with moments of terrible violence and subtle revelation, The Arab of the Future will be regarded as a vital text for future generations eager to understand the vastly complex and often brutal landscape of the Middle East at the close of the 20th century."
--Shelf Awareness Praise for The Arab of the Future


"I tore through two volumes of 'The Arab of the Future, ' by Riad Sattouf--it's the most enjoyable graphic novel I've read in a while. "
--Zadie Smith, The New York Times Book Review

"A deft and devastating graphic memoir . . . both sensitive and biting . . . Along the way, we get a fine-grained, first-person account of the brutality of Syria under Hafez al-Assad and Libya under Muammar Qaddafi."
--New York Review of Books"Exquisitely illustrated, and filled with experiences of misfortune bordering on the farcical, Mr. Sattouf's book is a disquieting yet essential read."
--Carmela Ciuraru, The New York Times"Darkly ironic . . . Sattouf's father is the same immature, posturing figure familiar from volume 1--the family can only trail along in the mercurial patriarch's wake. Under Sattouf's pen, this state of affairs becomes an ingeniously apt microcosm of the larger world he grew up in."
--NPR
