Emily Robbins: A Word For Love says
Drawn from many years of study and then work in the Middle East, in particular Syria, Emily Robbins’ brilliant meditation on love, ancient and contemporary, the travails and pleasures of life now, wherever it is lived, A Word for Love (Riverhead Books) is one of the strong debuts of the new year.

“Robbins’ melodic novel is story of war, family, language, but above all, a paean to unabashed, unbridled love. Told in quiet but elegant prose, each thump of this melodic novel’s heart (and what an enormous, rousing heart it is) attests to the timeless and life-giving power of love.” –Khaled Hosseini

“Robbins weaves a story complete with exquisite sentences, including descriptions of the Syrian landscape...Bea’s fascination with language and the unique characteristics of Arabic add delightful layers to the text. This is a rich, understated novel that offers an absorbing story full of longing, political intrigue, and the beauty found outside the familiar.” –Publishers Weekly
