Praise for ‘Dreams of Water’:
‘The beauty of this novel lies in its images which are vivid and strange, sometimes even fantastical...There is comfort in reading about characters, all of whom are withdrawn and inhibited, yet who are shown as capable of great tenderness.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘A slow-burning, powerful story of loss and grief’
'Twenty years ago, when civil war broke out in Lebanon, Nada Awar Jarrar was forced to flee with her family. Her novel Dreams of Water recasts this experience in a tale about a family whose son goes missing in war-ravaged Beirut'
‘This beautifully written book is powerfully evocative of the human cost of war and the longing for love, that despite the shooting and shelling, never fades.’
Nada Awar Jarrar was born in Lebanon to an Australian mother and a Lebanese father. She has lived in London, Paris, Sydney and Washington DC and is currently based in Beirut where she lives with her husband Bassem and their daughter Zeina. Her first novel, ‘Somewhere, Home’ won the Commonwealth Best First Book award for Southeast Asia and the South Pacific in 2004.
