Review

Praise for War and Me

“Hassan renders her harrowing experiences in an authentic, heartfelt manner, offering important testimony of personal and national courage. A beautifully wrought memoir from a pioneering Iraqi author.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Iraqi poet Faleeha Hassan (A Butterfly’s Voice) revisits a lifetime defined by war in this devastating and gorgeous work…While a sobering narrative, Hassan’s intelligence and resilience combine to yield an incredibly powerful look at the ripple effects of warfare. Her poignant tale of survival is one that readers won’t soon forget.” Publishers Weekly

Praise for Faleeha Hassan

“Faleeha Hassan, ‘the Maya Angelou of Iraq,’ wields a mighty pen.” —Oprah.com

From the Publisher

I did not come to Faleeha Hassan’s intimate, moving memoir of life in wartime expecting a healing sensation. But in remembering her past, Faleeha is offering the tender loving care she needs to move forward. Through her journey, we, too, feel the power of story to heal our own wounds.

As Oprah.com put it, “Faleeha Hassan, ‘the Maya Angelou of Iraq,’ wields a mighty pen.” Faleeha is a poet, playwright, writer, teacher, and editor who earned her master’s degree in Arabic literature and has published twenty-five books. She fled Iraq with her daughters, and she now resides in New Jersey, where she gives poetry readings at the local library. At one reading, a soldier who had served in Iraq was brought to tears by a poem she read. He told her he felt healed by her depiction of war, how it feels on the ground. Faleeha takes us there vividly with her memoir,
War and Me, a feat of storytelling.

Coming of age against the backdrop of war, Faleeha took serious risks to keep her family together—like traveling the front alone to find her father and brother—and to complete her education. The twists and turns of Faleeha’s story are shocking, and the suffering immense, but through it all we are held by her warmth and faith. I, for one, feel less alienated from the reality of war and more certain that our hearts can handle anything.

—Gabriella Page-Fort, Editor
