Impact of War

at Edinburgh International Book Festival

Author of the highly acclaimed The Bookseller of Kabul and One of Us, Åsne Seierstad, joins Rania Abouzeid for this talk at Edinburgh Book Festival.


With the war in Syria entering its 7th year, the two authors deliver a sharp analysis of the human cost of the conflict. In her latest book, Two Sisters, Åsne Seierstad has written the true story of siblings who left Norway to fight in the war and the father who attempted to bring them home. Rania Abouzeid has been reporting from the frontline and in No Turning Back, she recounts the secret deals which armed, then betrayed, the people’s uprising.
