Yasmina Khadra is the nom de plume of the Algerian army officer, Mohammed Moulessehoul, who took a feminine pseudonym to avoid submitting his manuscripts for approval by the army. He is the author of two other books published in English, In the Name of God and Wolf Dreams. He lives in France.
"A stiflingly powerful evocation of a country in which war has found a homeland" -- Chris Power The Times "Inspiring... Evokes the feeling of a nation's collective suffocation" Daily Telegraph "Harrowing... Remarkable... Khadra's simple, elegant prose, finely drawn characters and chilling insights prepare the way for the terrible climax... A superb meditation on the fate of the Afghan people" Publishers Weekly "A powerful human story" Financial Times "Intense, elegant, despairing prose...deeply affecting" Guardian
