Audible Editor Reviews

From US generals to destitute Iraqis on the streets of Baghdad, Voyage to a Stricken Land captures the war in Iraq at its most raw, emotional level. As the only western journalist invited to insurgent headquarters, author Sara Daniel's experience is compelling in its own right. In her acclaimed theater acting, performer Suehyla El Attar's has played both Jews and Muslims, and here she lends her voice to a broad range of people affected by the war: Kurdish villagers, US soldiers, radical insurgents, ascendant politicians, and tragedy stricken Iraqis. El Attar captures the intimate, emotionally touching nature of Daniel's story, as she relates the agonizing loss of a family member, outrage over the American occupation, and the draining frustration of a long war.

Publisher's Summary

Sara Daniel, a star European correspondent and one of the few women reporters covering Iraq, dares to venture where few have gone, in this gripping and fascinating memoir. In June of 2002, war looms and Saddam Hussein still has a brutal grip on a nation in disarray. Sara Daniel travels the length and breadth of Iraq, following the fast-evolving events and interviewing people from all walks of life and all religious and political affiliations: from the Kurds in the north to the rising new politicians in Baghdad and beyond; from the insurgents in Sadr City and Fallujah to the police chief in Basra; from the hospital doctors tending the maimed and wounded to the directors of museums whose collections were ruthlessly pillaged; from ordinary men and women in the streets to those vying to fill the void of power; from American soldiers on deadly street patrol to the highest-ranking officers.

Voyage to a Stricken Land offers a cogent, personal history of one of America’s most controversial conflicts.
