A couple more reviews

A Map of Home was recently reviewed in Booklist and Alef Magazine. A short excerpt from the Booklist review:

Ah, eccentric families. In Jarrar’s first novel, the lovable Ammars are talkative, argumentative, and so alive they practically burst off the page. … Jarrar is sophisticated and deft, and her impressive debut is especially intriguing considering her clever use of recent Middle East history

And a snippet from Alef:

[A Map of Home] sparkles with humour and intelligence. Nidali tenderly describes her rollicking family life, recounted with both a wicked sense of humour and seriousness. Nidali’s parents are larger-than-life characters. …This brilliant book is not one to overlook.

And you can have your very own copy in a month.
