Having spent the better part of the last decade in the Middle East as the spouse of an NPR war correspondent, one time Rolling Stone and Village Voice editor Nathan Deuel experienced first hand the at times exciting at others tumultuous Arab Spring and subsequent civil wars. Now back in the States, he’s collected his thoughts on the time he spent in Saudi Arabia into a memoir “Friday Was the Bomb: Five Years in the Middle East,” a novel he’ll be reading from at Green Apple Books.
Please join Green Apple in the Granny Smith Room at 7:00pm on Wednesday, May 14th as we host Nathan Deuel while he reads from his new book, Friday Was The Bomb: Five Years in the Middle East. In 2008, Nathan Deuel, a former editor at Rolling Stone and The Village Voice, and his wife, a National Public Radio foreign correspondent, moved to the deeply Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to see for themselves what was happening in the Middle East. There they had a daughter, and later, while his wife filed reports from Baghdad and Syria, car bombs erupted and one night a firefight raged outside the family's apartment in Beirut. Their marriage strained, and they struggled with the decision to stay or go home.
