3:am Magazine review of Falcons on the Floor by Declan Tan

Amazing review in 3am Magazine.

"Sirois’ voice is so unremittingly steady and even, each line whispering into the next, that occasionally his attempts to ratchet tension trail through almost unnoticed...

Apart from its obvious value in and of itself as a frequently striking piece of prose, Sirois’ novel is also notable for its perspective. After an unrelenting slew of movies and books telling the invasion story from American or British or Western points of view, this is a narrative that does at least some justice to the people of Iraq by telling it from their side."
