Product Details

About the Author

Diana Abu-Jaber is the award-winning author of four novels, including Crescent, and a previous memoir, The Language of Baklava. She and her family divide time between Miami, Florida, and Portland, Oregon.


"A story that unfolds beautifully, as lightly and naturally as a roll of silk." -- The Nation "Readers stuffed on headlines but still hungering for something relevant will enjoy this rich meal." -- Christian Science Monitor "[A] lovely urgent mix of Scheherazade-style storytelling and treatise on the loneliness of exile." -- Andrea Spencer - Oregonian "Abu-Jaber is a high-spirited, magnificently graceful storyteller, a poet of deliciously fluted fiction, character, and culture." -- Naomi Shihab Nye "A powerful story about the loneliness of exile and the limits of love. An impressive second outing by Abu-Jaber." -- Kirkus Reviews "Gorgeously written and deeply imagined, this novel is both a fable and a plea-a book that weaves a hypnotic, lasting spell." -- Beth Kephart - Book Magazine "[A] beautifully imagined and timely novel." -- Publishers Weekly "Crescent is a rich, delicious concoction that has you rooting for the star-crossed lovers." -- John Muncie - The Baltimore Sun "Wise, spirited, and evocative, this work offers an ardent look at the human side of political cant." -- Library Journal "It is a story about how to cook and how to eat, and how to live in the new country. And, like all good novels, it is about how to tell a story." -- Sigrid Nunez
