Dinarzad’s Children: An Anthology of Contemporary Arab American Fiction


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This collection of short stories is by far one of the most engaging I’ve ever read! It’s the sort of thing you’ll want to read many times over!!!
    Rating: 5 / 5

  2. You don’t have to be an Arab American to appreciate this collection of short stories. Some of the voices may not be familiar, but many of the stories are. At times heartbreaking, at times hilarious, each story represents a facet of the human experience. If you consider yourself to be a literary adventurer, add this anthology to your “to do” list.
