Praise for ‘Dreams of Water’:
‘The beauty of this novel lies in its images which are vivid and strange, sometimes even fantastical…There is comfort in reading about characters, all of whom are withdrawn and inhibited, yet who are shown as capable of great tenderness.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘A slow-burning, powerful story of loss and grief’
'Twenty years ago, when civil war broke out in Lebanon, Nada Awar Jarrar was forced to flee with her family. Her novel Dreams of Water recasts this experience in a tale about a family whose son goes missing in war-ravaged Beirut'
‘This beautifully written book is powerfully evocative of the human cost of war and the longing for love, that despite the shooting and shelling, never fades.’
