Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Never married, living with an Iraqi immigrant uncle, and working as a chef in a Lebanese restaurant, thirty-nine-year-old Sirine finds her life turned upside down by a handsome Arabic literature professor who not only awakens unexpected feelings but alsostirs up memories of her parents and questions about her Arab American identity.


Review:

"What might have been the stuff of any romance is forced into a powerful story about the loneliness of exile and the limits of love. Am impressive second outing by Abu-Jaber."

Kirkus, 02/01/2003

Review:

"Just as Virginia Woolf's classic work MRS. DALLOWAY...is more than a story about an upper-class woman preparing for a party, CRESCENT goes far beyond menu-planning. The big issues here are exile, identity and the transformative power of true love, with Saddam Hussein a sinister, looming presence throughout the book....[T]his is a story that unfolds beautifully, as lightly and naturally as a roll of silk."

Charlotte Innes, Nation, 06/16/2003
