Rise the Euphrates

20th Anniversary Edition with an Introduction by the Author

Narrative Library is proud to present the twentieth-anniversary edition of Carol Edgarian’s critically acclaimed, bestselling first novel, newly revised and with an introduction by the author.

When Rise the Euphrates was published twenty years ago, the Chicago Tribune called it “a beautiful and generous book” and named it the best debut of the year. The book went on to receive the 1994 ANC Freedom Award.

If you haven’t already read this captivating multigenerational American story, or if you loved Carol Edgarian’s stunning recent novel, Three Stages of Amazement, you’ll want to own her debut work.

“This is a book whose generosity of spirit, intelligence, humanity, and finally ambition are what literature ought to be.” —The Washington Post
