Congratulations to Ariel Sabar

Congratulations to Ariel Sabar, winner of the National Book Critics Circle award for autobiography, for his incredible My Father's Paradise: A Son's Search for his Jewish Past in Kurdish Iraq.

You can read my review here.

My Father's Paradise was one of the best books I read in 2008, and one of the best nonfiction books I've read ever. And every single person I know who's read it, has loved it. It doesn't matter what your background is, or how much you think you might be interested in the subject. It's a wonderful book. Read it. And congrats to Sabar.
