Two boyhood friends leave Fallujah, Iraq on the eve of one of the largest sieges of the war. Neither of them want to fight in the uprising. The violence of the war follows them up the Euphrates River on a journey neither of them will ever forget. + Falcons on the Floor is the rare novel about war that re-humanizes everyone involved. Through excellent writing and a deep understanding of what occupation does, to civilians and soldiers alike, Sirois and Alshujairy take the reader on a deeply personal journey where we are shown how and why war should be avoided at all cost. Dahr Jamail, independent journalist and author of Beyond the Green Zone + Falcons on the Floor is witty and darkly funny when it needs to be, and its sad and disastrous moments are perfectly timed... Sirois knows his craft. American Book Review + Reading Falcons is to witness the stunning, troubled metamorphosis of one type of fiction into another. Our discussion of a new wave of politically engaged, outward-looking novels starts here. Colorado Review
