This deeply resonating memoir of the Middle East is about the rhythms of daily lives and the breaking of those rhythms. Journalist Annia Ciezadlo was born in Chicago and Indiana, but in 2003, she moved to Baghdad, where she spent her honeymoon with her Lebanese husband. Over the next six years, she reported on events in war-torn Iraq and Beirut, even as she absorbed the shared recipes and rituals of Middle Eastern households. Day of Honey records the dissonance between those quieting traditional patterns and the bloody chaos of infectious violence. It teaches its compassionate lessons without preaching; to bring them completely home, it offers a full bounty of family recipes.
