Product description


An absolutely riveting novel . . . a rare and precious humanizing of the terrible conflagration in Syria. Eva is a writer of the first order and this is a searing and incredibly important book, storytelling at its best., Donal Ryan, author of FROM A LOW AND QUIET SEA (longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and shortlisted for the Costa Book Awards)

This warm, captivating and inspiring story shows that even the bottomless horrors of war-torn Syria are no match for the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit and the power of love and friendship., Mike Thomson, author of SYRIA'S SECRET LIBRARY

Compelling and uncompromising., BBC Radio 4 Sunday

Incredible... a deeply interesting and loving recounting of not just Sami's experience, but the wider story of the people of Syria., Sunday Business Post

The Stray Cats of Homs brings to life the human, inside story of one of the most brutal sieges in recent history, with Syria's Assad trying to break the will of young rebels daring to stand up to the dictator and taking refuge in an ancient city. The novel is as revealing as it is inspiring with its depictions of the lengths heroes will go to in search of personal freedom., Mark Sullivan, author of BENEATH A SCARLET SKY --This text refers to the paperback edition.
