Poet Naomi Shihab Nye quote about BITTER ALMONDS

Lilas Taha's great gift in BITTER ALMONDS is to create characters and scenes so richly resonant with life and vitality, that the complicated, lush world of the Middle East feels as tangible and close as any world you are living in. Crucial in our strange days?  Perhaps more than anything.”

Naomi Shihab Nye, author of HABIBI
