"The sky was split by an epiphany of bombs. And the memories of the past Aleppo knocked at my door."
Raw, insightful, and often heartbreaking account of one man living through the brutal conflict in Syria that has killed thousands of civilians, led to a major refugee crisis, and left most world power either powerless or complicit (Russia). Hisham, now a journalist, brings the war home in a way that most journalism has failed to do. Illustrated by New York artist Molly Crabapple.
Other worthwhile books about the Syrian war: "Assad or We Burn the Country" and "We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled."
