Woman in the Crossfire

A well-known novelist and journalist from the coastal city of Jableh, Samar Yazbek witnessed in person and actively participated in the first four months of the Syrian "intifada." Throughout she kept a diary of personal reflections. Her outspoken views published in print, online, and on Facebook quickly attracted the attention and fury of the regime, as vicious rumors spread about her disloyalty to the homeland and the Alawite community from which she comes. This narrative weaves together her struggle to protect herself and her young daughter after she is forced to leave her home and live on the run, detained multiple times, and eventually flees to Europe.

Filled with exhilarating hope and horrifying atrocities, "A Woman in the Crossfire" offers us a wholly unique perspective on the Syrian uprising. Yazbek's is a modest yet powerful testament to the strength and commitment of countless unnamed Syrians who dream of bringing an end to a forty-year-old dictatorship. Their fight for their dignity will inspire all those who read this book and challenge the world to look anew at the trials and tribulations of the Syrian uprising.

Samar Yazbek has published several novels and collections of short stories, the most recent of which is "In Her Mirrors." An excerpt of her novel "Cinnamon" was published in the anthology "Beirut 39" (Bloomsbury, 2010) and will be published by Haus in 2013.
