Description: The three narratives joined together in New Yorker staff writer Lawrence Weschler's latest volume were conceived from the start as a sort of triptych: three tales, that is, about basically decent expatriates (the first an Iraqi, the second a Czech, the third an Afrikaner), each of whom tries to do the fight thing with regard to the totalitarian regime holding sway over his homeland -- the thing the reader, too, might have done, if only he were much more courageous than he is -- only to end up thoroughly wracked and bollixed.

Kanan Makiya, for example, hiding behind the pseudonym "Samir al-Khalil", pens a savage indictment of Saddam Hussein's reign of terror in Iraq, and more specifically of the Iraqi intelligentsia and artists who collude in that reign -- artists, that is, like his own father, the dictator's favorite architect.
