Pressestimmen"The most intimate description of an Afghan household ever produced by a Western journalist... Seierstad is a sharp and often lyrical observer." -- New York Times Book Review "An admirable, revealing portrait of daily life in a country that Washington claims to have liberated but does not begin to understand. Seierstad writes of individuals, but her message is larger." -- Washington Post Book World "A compelling portrait of a country at a crossroads - desperate for tranquillity, factionalized beyond imagination, struggling both to uphold tradition and to modernize, hoping to prove to itself and the rest of the world that it knows peace and stability." -- Boston Globe "An unusually intimate glimpse of a traditional Afghan family... Seierstad imbues a grim story with language of desolate beauty." -- Entertainment Weekly "A compelling book... Seierstad infiltrated a world most readers will never see." -- Denver Post
