Abstract:

It is spring 2012 and 40,000 people have died since the start of the Syrian Arab Spring. In the wake of this, Yasmine has set up a clandestine hospital in the north of the country. Her town is controlled by Assad's brutal regime, but is relatively stable. However, as the months pass, the situation becomes increasingly complex and violent. Told in stark, black-and-white imagery, Sulaiman's fictionalized account of true events illuminates a complicated situation with detail and dark humor. --From publisher description.
