After 13 years in America, Abu Saheeh has returned to his native Iraq, a nation transformed by the American military presence. Alone in a new city, he has exactly what he wants: freedom from his past. Then he meets Layla, a whimsical fourteen-year-old girl who enchants him with her love of American pop culture. Enchanted by Layla''s stories and her company, Abu Saheeh settles into the city''s rhythm and begins rebuilding his life. But two sudden developments--his alliance with a powerful merchant and his employment of a hot-headed young assistant--reawaken painful memories, and not even Layla may be able to save Abu Saheeh from careening out of control and endangering all around them.

A breathtaking tale of friendship, love, and betrayal, One Hundred and One Nights is an unforgettable novel about the struggle for salvation and the power of family.

Editorial Reviews

"Tell the world about this book.... [ONE HUNDRED AND ONE NIGHTS] is undeniably a moving, evocative gem....Behind brutality of war and inescapable violence of Hezbollah and jihadists is the demand of love--the main impetus driving this story....It is amazing how a story set in the Middle East but written by an American can feel so real, as though every scene depicted is a scene witnessed and then etched in Buchholz''s mind, there to be concocted with many others to form this novel....So eloquently does it depict the lives of ordinary Iraqi people, so lyrical is its prose, and so mysteriously engaging is its story that I can''t call this book anything other than a true gem."-Abby Wong, The Star Online (Malaysia)
