“A page turner” – Azadeh Moaveni

Image of book coverI’ve long been a fan of Azadeh Moaveni‘s writing, and especially enjoyed her book Lipstick Jihad, which tells about her Iranian-American childhood and her attempts to return to Iran. So I was really happy that she agreed to endorse Dining with al-Qaeda:

“Hugh Pope’s deftly told account of 30 years in the Middle East recounts the region’s troubles with bracing honesty, and its charms with genuine affection. Often a page-turner, populated by a colorful cast of deeply human characters, Dining with Al-Qaeda goes beyond the day’s headlines to offer a nuanced and compelling portrait of the region. Pope brims with remarkably brave and crucial insight into the Western media’s coverage of the Middle East.”
