In 2008, Nathan Deuel, a former editor at Rolling Stone and the Village Voice, and his wife, a National Public Radio foreign correspondent, moved to the deeply Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to see for themselves what was happening in the Middle East. There they had a daughter, and later, while his wife filed reports from Baghdad and Syria, car bombs erupted and one night a firefight raged outside the familya€™s apartment in Beirut. Their marriage strained, and they struggled with the decision to stay or go home. At once a meditation on fatherhood, an unusual memoir of a war correspondenta€™s spouse, and a first-hand account from the front lines of the most historic events of recent daysa€”the Arab Spring, the end of the Iraq war, and the unrest in Syriaa€”Friday Was the Bomb is a searing collection of timely and absorbing essays.Another time, on Craigslist, a search for a€œoceana€ gave mea dark twobedroom in BayRidge, a€œright near a Crab Shack! ... a day to get here from the southern tip of Manhattan through the brush and the forest and required a boat tocross the river. ...
