Matar’s Debut, Stateside

I had bought a copy of Hisham Matar’s In The Country of Men when I was in London last summer, and finally got around to reading it…last week. I enjoyed it quite a bit–it builds slowly in intensity, and deals with a terrible subject with a lot of grace and restraint. It looks like it just came out in the States: Ron Charles reviews it for The Washington Post.
