    • "Many of these voices are unforgettable...Pearlman shapes her subjects' narratives, winnowing interviews down to stirring examples of human adaptation...essential reading." -- New York Times Book Review "Pearlman spoke with hundreds of displaced Syrians.... Common among the spare and haunting testimonies of these mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters are the loss and reappearance of hope, humanity, and dreams of new freedom. This powerfully edifying work of witness is essential reading." -- Booklist... Ver más

    SINOPSIS We Crossed a Bridge and it Trembled

    "Many of these voices are unforgettable...Pearlman shapes her subjects' narratives, winnowing interviews down to stirring examples of human adaptation...essential reading." -- New York Times Book Review "Pearlman spoke with hundreds of displaced Syrians.... Common among the spare and haunting testimonies of these mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters are the loss and reappearance of hope, humanity, and dreams of new freedom. This powerfully edifying work of witness is essential reading." -- Booklist (starred review) "It's unsurprising to see the anger not just toward Syrian president Bashar al-Assad but also toward the international community...Nonetheless, the book is filled with hope, informed by an understanding of the unity possible in spite of the discord sowed by Assad." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A heartbreaking, human, and necessary book. Recommended for anyone who wishes to better understand the Syrian conflict." -- Library Journal "A timely and useful exploration into the events leading up to and following the Syrian uprising and ongoing refugee crisis." -- VICE "A gut-wrenching collection of true experiences of Syrians whose lives have been transformed, often torn apart, by the ongoing conflict. A breathtaking yet haunting work of nonfiction, this necessary book could not have come at a better time." -- Bustle "The West has been repeatedly numbed to the human rights travesty of the authoritarian Assad regime-or worse, encouraged to think of its victims as outsiders-but these accounts fly in the face of that selfish idea." -- Elle.com "An important work -- vivid, moving, and unforgettable." -- Omnivoracious "A moving collection of personal accounts from Syrians covering the time before the conflict with Bashar Al-Assad to now." -- Rebellious Magazine"Pearlman's book is not only important because it puts names to suffering, but also because it reminds readers-especially in the final segment, "Reflections"-that in the Syrian conflict, "there is no right or wrong," only problematic "shades of gray." A poignant and humane collection." -- Kirkus Reviews "Incendiary-this heart-wrenching testament could not be more timely. Beyond headlines or breaking news or political posturing, this work of witness allows real people to expose Syria's terrifying heart." -- Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway and Into The Beautiful North "To read these pages, to meet these men and women, is to cross a bridge ourselves, and to tremble: at the fragility of social order...but also at the love, anger, terror, trauma, compassion, endurance, awe, and determination a single human voice can convey." -- Larry Siems, author of The Torture Report and editor of Mohamedou Ould Slahi's Guantanamo Diary "Pearlman masterfully stitches together a collective journey, stories moving seamlessly from one to the next...The disparate voices, ranging from defiant, funny, mournful, wistful, and tragic, form a complex narrative of the Syrian tragedy-my story, my family's stories, the stories of the people and lives that we lost." -- Lina Sergie Attar, cofounder and chief executive of the Karam Foundation "A powerful must read book for anyone wanting to understand what's happening in Syria and why it matters." -- Chicago Review of Books "A stunning mosaic of narratives told in vignettes of varying lengths. It's hard to fathom the humanitarian disaster of the Syrian war. These testimonies-wrenching but also deeply hopeful-help us wrap our minds around it."- -- Fusion "As a vital and powerful document of suppressed perspectives, We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled should be required reading for not just all Americans, but everyone." -- The Riveter "Pearlman's collection is a chance to remind ourselves of the humanity behind the UNHRC's ticking number of displaced people and what's reported in the daily news." -- WBUR
