The Underground Book Club blog discusses Niko
"Niko is a lovely novel and a significant achievement by a young writer with much to say, " says Michael Bryson.

Niko reviewed in Maisonneuve
"Nasrallah mostly circumvents rehashed, pedantic tales of immigration and childhood. His prose catapults the eager reader into Niko’s conflicted world, " says Caitlin Manicom.


Niko reviewed in The Globe & Mail
"Nasrallah possesses superb powers of description. With a few deft strokes, he delivers a character’s essence and motivations. His idiosyncratically scarred landscapes shimmer in exotic hues."
