Bust Magazine Iris Blasi ..`.a winning combination ... [`A Map of Home` is a] spectacular fresh and funny debut novel.` Publishers Weekly `Starred review` Jarrar`s sparkling debut about an audacious Muslim girl growing up in Kuwait, Egypt and Texas is intimate, perceptive and very, very funny. Nidali Ammar is born in Boston to a Greek-Egyptian mother and a Palestinian father, and moves to Kuwait at a very young age, staying there until she`s 13, when Iraq invades. A younger brother is born in Kuwait, rounding out a family of complex citizenships. During the occupation, the family flees to Alexandria in a wacky caravan, bribing soldiers along the way with whiskey and silk ties. But they don`t stay long in Egypt, and after the war, Nidali`s father finds work in Texas. At first, Nidali is disappointed to learn that feeling rootless doesn`t make her an outsider in the States, and soon it turns out the precocious and endearing Arab chick isn`t very different from other American girls, a reality that only her father may find difficult to accept. Jarrar explores familiar adolescent ground--stifling parental expectations, precarious friendships, sensuality and first love--but her exhilarating voice and flawless timing make this a standout. `(Sept.)` Kirkus Reviews `Starred review` A first-time novelist offers a fictional take on her own complex heritage. Nidali`s Baba is Palestinian. Her Mama is half-Greek and half-Egyptian. In addition to this mixed-up background, Nidali has an American passport and a precociously peripatetic personal history. Born in Boston, Nidali grows up in Kuwait, but her family flees to Egypt during the 1990 Iraqi invasion. By the time she lands in Texas, Nidali has become a seasoned traveler, and, wherever she goes, she carries with her a keen awareness of her inescapable difference. Nidali`s story is shaped by the harsh realities of ethnic division, political uncertainty and war, but it is also, essentially, a typical coming-of-age story. Jarrar is a funny, incisive writer, and she`s positively heroic in her refusal to employ easy sentimentality or cheap pathos. Nidali is a misfit living through calamitous times, but Jarrar understands that `all` adolescents feel like misfits living through calamitous times. The political is always personal for Nidali. For her, bombs dropping on Kuwait mean that nobody remembers her 13th birthday. As her family drives across Iraq on their way to Egypt, she writes a letter to Saddam Hussein complaining that his invasion has separated her from her boyfriend. And, ultimately, international crises have less impact on Nidali`s life than ongoing battles between her and her Baba on subjects like curfew and college. A coming-of-age story that`s both singular and universal--an outstanding debut. (Agent: Jin Auh/The Wylie Agency) Alef Magazine Randa Jarrar, like her main character Nidali, is of Arab and Greek heritage and grew up in Kuwait, Egypt and the US. Her partly autobiographical novel sparkles with humour and intelligence. Nidali tenderly describes her rollicking family life, recounted with both a wicked sense of humour and seriousness.

Nidali, the rebellious daughter of an Egyptian-Greek mother and a Palestinian father, narrates the story of her childhood in Kuwait, her teenage years in Egypt (to where she and her family fled the 1990 Iraqi invasion), and her family`s last flight to Texas. Nidali mixes humor with a sharp, loving portrait of an eccentric middle-class family, and this perspective keeps her buoyant through the hardships she encounters: the humiliation of going through a checkpoint on a visit to her father`s home in the West Bank the fights with her father, who wants her to become a famous professor and stay away from boys the end of her childhood as Iraq invades Kuwait on her thirteenth birthday and the scare she gives her family when she runs away from home.Funny, charming, and heartbreaking, A Map of Home is the kind of book Tristram Shandy or Huck Finn would have narrated had they been born Egyptian-Palestinian and female in the 1970s.From the Hardcover edition.
