This is a heartbreaking beautifully expressed vibrant and poetic coming of age novel depicting the tragedies and horrors of war including civil war visited on the city of Baghdad in Ira It is observed through the eyes of a child a young Irai girl growing up in a small neighbourhood giving us a glimpse into the everyday lives and culture of the city at the beginning of the First Gulf War in 1991 She finds herself in air raid shelters finding a good and close friend in Nadia sharing their hopes and dreams for a better and promising future Amidst all the fun of a childhood visiting the Baghdad Clock in the dark the menace of war begins to intrude on their lives We begin to get a human picture of the ordinary people in the community including the star turn of pet dog Biryad a an entertaining and lovable pet dog a character in his own right Economic sanctions soon begin to be seen to bite the locals Baghdad is clearly being decimated and disintegrating amidst the deaths and disappearances that begin to become daily occurrences as the impact of war devastates beyond measure This is an atmospheric grim and hard hitting novel it depicts a Baghdad that few of us saw at the time and how ordinary Irais lives were wrecked with many leaving and forced to live in exile The author does a stellar job in the characterisation and the depiction of culture and community Within this mix there is an element of the magical and the fantastical and those who foretell the future A wonderfully imagined atmospheric story bittersweet emotional a song of innocence marred by war and the resilience of childhood This novel deserves a wide readership it is an engaging and compelling read portraying a nation ripped apart and even today Baghdad remains doomed to never ending suffering Highly recommended Many thanks to Oneworld Publications for an ARC
