Description:
Now in paperback, the powerful memoir that The New York Times describedas filled with adrenalized scenes Ciezadlo is the kind of thinker who listens as well as she writes. Her sentences make a smart, wired-up sound on the page. Readers will be lucky to find her. American Book Award WinnerWinner of Books for a Better Life Award (First Book)James Beard Foundation Award NomineeBNN Discover Awards, second place nonfiction IN THE FALL OF 2003, AS IRAQ DESCENDED INTO CIVIL WAR, Annia Ciezadlo spent her honeymoon in Baghdad. For the next six years, she lived in Baghdad and Beirut, where she dodged bullets during sectarian street battles, chronicled the Arab world s first peaceful revolution, and watched Hezbollah commandos invade her Beirut neighborhood. Throughout all of it, she broke bread with Sunnis and Shiites, warlords and refugees, matriarchs and mullahs. Day of Honey is her story of the hunger for food and friendship during wartime a communion that feeds the soul as much as the body. In lush, fiercely intelligent prose, Ciezadlo uses food and the rituals of eating to uncover a vibrant Middle East most Americans never see. We get to know people like Roaa, a young Kurdish woman whose world shrinks under occupation to her own kitchen walls; Abu Rifaat, a Baghdad book lover who spends his days eavesdropping in the ancient city s legendary cafes; and the unforgettable Umm Hassane, Ciezadlo s sardonic Lebanese mother-in-law, who teaches her to cook rare family
