"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.

Their marriage strained, and they struggled with the decision to stay or go home. At once a meditation on fatherhood, an unusual memoir of a war correspondent's spouse, and a first-hand account from the front lines of the most historic events of recent days-- the Arab Spring, the end of the Iraq war, and the unrest in Syria-- Friday Was the Bomb is a searing collection of timely and absorbing essays"--Page 4 of cover.
