In a Time of Monsters
Reviewed on May 15, 2019 by Booklist
In a Time of Monsters: Travels Through a Middle East in Revolt will be reviewed in the May 15, 2019 issue of Booklist. The reviewer says “Sky writes like a novelist, making this ideal recommendation for foreign-affairs-related book clubs hard to set down.” The complete review follows: 

Sky, a Briton and currently a senior fellow at Yale, has spent the bulk of her career in the Middle East, including serving as a political adviser to the former top U.S. general in Iraq, Ray Odierno. She recorded some of her experiences in The Unravelling (2015). She now continues her story, beginning with her return home from Iraq in 2010 and her subsequent struggle with culture shock. The following year, she set out to study the Arab Spring, visiting and writing about Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and more, always trying to better understand places enveloped in turmoil and the people there as they struggled with sometimes-clueless Western interventions. Sky has friends everywhere and her patient queries evoke valuable insights into the unique sources of regional discontent. Her despair at the Assad regime in Syria and the West’s predictable but devastating response to the refugee crisis is palpable, as is her resolve to serve as witness and recorder of the burning world. Sky writes like a novelist, making this ideal recommendation for foreign-affairs-related book clubs hard to set down. — Colleen Mondor

All the Better Part of Me
Reviewed on May 9, 2019 by Publishers Weekly
All the Better Part of Me was reviewed in Publishers Weekly on May 9th, 2019. The reviewer says "Ringle navigates her twisty revelations and dramatic conclusion with just enough weight to avoid mawkishness, and her characters earn their happy ending.
