Reviews

"A fast-paced, evocative thriller that opens our eyes to the excitements and dangers of Iraq after the fall of Saddam. This gripping, beautifully-observed tale, written with a ring of true authenticity, captures the challenges of a journalist and her loyal fixer navigating their way through an Iraq rarely seen by outsiders." Rory McCarthy, Guardian Correspondent and author of 'Nobody Told Us We Are Defeated: Stories from the New Iraq' "A unique novel, Baghdad Fixer's compelling plot is combined with poignant and difficult insights into the life and tragedies of ordinary Iraqis during the war. This is not just a wonderful read, it is an important book for helping us, too, to begin to understand the Other." Tania Hershman, author of 'My Mother Was An Upright Piano' and 'The White Road and Other Stories'
