Critical Praise

“Few books are better than this one at conveying the confusion and excitement of those days on the square.” - New York Times Book Review

“Steavenson weaves together a mosaic portrait that tightly focuses on the people…of the revolution.” - Minneapolis Star Tribune

“[Steavenson] creates a vibrant sense of being on the ground in Cairo…” - Los Angeles Times

“There is much to praise in her evocative, impressionistic sketches of the stirring events in Egypt…Her actual writing is first-rate. She cares deeply about her subjects but her critical acuity and keen sense of humor see through their foibles and contradictions.” - Washington Times

“A moving, empathetic portrayal of a central movement of our time: the brave Egyptian people’s attempt to end repression without the tools or the leaders to succeed.” - Library Journal

“Impassioned coverage from the front lines of a historic Middle Eastern uprising… An intensive firsthand exploration of modern Egyptian liberation and solidarity.” - Kirkus
