Soldier, Lily, Peace and Pearls

Powerful, moving novel. "Soldier, Lily, Peace and Pearls" transports you from lush rice fields and chaotic marketplaces of Southeast Asia to the tragedy of war in the Middle East and to the frigid temperatures of Quebec City as though the reader were on the same boat, same flight, witnessing the same madness of exploding bombs, treading on the same glacial sidewalks. Con Cú masterfully weaves the complicated, heartbreaking and endearing lives of his characters. This is an original, compelling story from one of Canada’s new voices.

– Sonia Saikaley, author of "The Lebanese Dishwasher"
