Product Description


"A beautiful book, beautifully written with a pen dipped in line accuracy, the accuracy of the look, the talent of the sketch, without sacrificing the complexity of thought that underlies . . . This powerful fresco exposes the relationship between power and family, corruption and repression, sheds new light on what was believed to [be known of] Syria and the Middle East."
(The Huffington Post)

"Dominique Eddé leads her reader with an iron hand. Reversals, speed, voltage constantly stirred, it gives Kamal Jann all the seductions of a spy novel, but never wanting to stop there, leaving the spiral of her plot to sink into dark areas, which go beyond the kind."
(The World Book)

"This novel is masterfully impressive."

"A haunting evocation whose secret lies in Dominique Eddé’s unadorned writing, where irony mingles inextricably with the plight of a people prisoner to follies of its elite."
(RFI radio)

"An impressive political and sentimental fresco about the destiny of a powerful Syrian family."
(Livres Hebdo)

"[A] tale of familial and political intrigue, a murky stew of byzantine alliances, betrayals, and hostilities. It is a well-told story of revenge and, what’s more, a serious novel that contemplates what it means to accept your past."
(Three Percent)

"Beautifully written."
(Times Literary Supplement)

“Gripping . . . a novel of considerable power.”
(World Literature Today)

Kamal Jann appears, for its seeming ability to read the palm of the future, like a work of history written in advance of the events which it recounts. . . . A richly nuanced novel of political, even polemical, drive.”
