A young Iraqi writer sets out to become a Hollywood film-maker, only to end up as a refugee on the streets of Paris
A forgiving and powerful book
A cinematographic odyssey. At once amusing and touching, Samuel Shimon lets his gaze travel
with a camera's precision'
It is a wonderful text. Full of life and art. An autobiography full of humour, irony, noblesse and sadness. It reminds me of George Orwell's great book Down and Out in Paris and London
Throughout this careening, fast-paced, episodic narrative, Shimon never loses his poignant sense of humour. He consistently folds the absurdity of political violence into the intimacy of human relations'
Startlingly funny ... always witty and humane
A cunningly iconoclastic storyteller... with a keenly cinematographic and unflinching eye for detail... a relentless raconteur -
