Critics reviews

Such a story easily could have slid into some form of sentimentality. But this never happens because the three lead characters keep surprising us — both in their lack of power and in the various ways they can bring limited empowerment to one another. And one very gradually comes to understand that what led the U.S. to occupy Iraq for obscure reasons — and to muddle things even further by calling this occupation a war — is closely tied to these characters’ shared dilemma.
