NY Times Book Review: Emma Sky’s “The Unraveling”

Jump to Comments

The American Adam — naive, armed, and dangerous — stomping about a world he fails to grasp and in whose boundless narcissism broods “Why do they hate us?”:

“Throughout the months, and then years, that Sky spent in Iraq, she was amazed at the naivete she encountered among the Americans. ‘When I arrived, one of the questions put to me was “What do we need to do to be loved?” Sky writes, ‘I told them that people who invaded other people’s countries, and killed people who were no threat to them, would never be loved.'”
