Description

A New York Times Editors' Choice

"This devastating memoir unflinchingly recounts Murad's experiences and questions the complicity of witnesses who acquiesced in the suffering of others." --The New Yorker

"Her book is sobering--and an inspiration." --People

"A harrowing memoir. . . . Intricate in historical context. . . . The Last Girl leaves readers with urgent, incendiary questions." --The New York Times Book Review

"Murad gives us a window on the atrocities that destroyed her family and nearly wiped out her vulnerable community. This is a courageous memoir that serves as an important step toward holding to account those who committed horrific crimes." --The Washington Post

"This is likely the most inspiring feminist memoir out this year." --Bustle

"Nadia Murad's courageous account is horrific and essential reading. . . . Anyone who wants to understand the so-called Islamic State should read The Last Girl." --The Economist

"Fascinating." --Vulture

"Surpassingly valuable. . . . With her new book, The Last Girl, Nadia Murad has assumed the stature of an Elie Wiesel for her people. . . . As much as it is an account of the Yazidi genocide, the book is also a loving ode to a way of life that has now been all but obliterated." --Jewish Journal

"A harrowing and brave book, a testament to human resilience." --The Progressive

"A devastating yet ultimately inspiring memoir that doubles as an urgent call to action." --Kirkus

"Brilliant and intense. . . . a clear-eyed account of ISIS's cruelty." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Powerful. . . . A heartbreaking elegy to a lost community." --Booklist
