A Hundred and One Nights is a fearless and seductive piece of ventriloquism by a storyteller in full command of his craft. With spare, lyrical prose, Benjamin Buchholz draws us into the mind of an Iraqi doctor haunted by the violence he has witnessed. In search of healing, Abu Saheeh moves from Baghdad to a small town in southern Iraq. But even as he begins to forge a new life and a friendship with an enchanting young girl named Layla, the horrors of his past rear up, threatening to destroy all he holds dear. Buchholz’s first novel is a spike in the heart, a powerful testimony to the insanity of war and the undeniable demands of love.
