International Besteller: The 21 was an instant bestseller in Europe upon its publication in German in February 2018. Major media event: The brutal killing of 21 Coptic Christians by ISIS in Libya was an unforgettable moment that still arouses interest. Publication date is on the four-year anniversary of the event. Center of a continuing global conflict: The turmoil in the Middle East and the issues of Islamic extremism, refugees, and economic migration that the book address continue to capture headlines regularly. Sheds light on a fascinating subculture: Coptic Christianity is an intriguing but little-understood religion in the center of the Middle Eastern conflict.

Martin Mosebach, Alta Price

Martin Mosebach passed his bar exams to qualify as a lawyer in 1979, and then established himself as a writer. His first novel was published in 1983. Since then, he has received many accolades, including the Heinrich von Kleist Prize, the Georg Buchner Prize, and the Goethe Award.

Martin Mosebach is a superb journalist. Virtually nothing escapes his gaze, and he glosses over nothing. --Hannes Stein, Die Welt Mosebach provides striking images of a singular Christianity unfamiliar to many Christians outside of the Middle East.... Through immersive scenes and finely drawn portraits of the people he meets, he exhibits a clear admiration for the Coptic devotion on every page. This will appeal to Christians as well as readers wanting to understand the lives of minorities in Muslim countries.--Publishers Weekly Martin Mosebach is undoubtedly one of the most intelligent, original, and powerfully eloquent poets of the present day. --Ulrich Greiner, Die Zeit Few contemporary writers have delved so deeply into the disturbing experiences of such an entirely different world and way of life. --HR 2 Mosebach has mastered a rare art: maintaining deep respect for the other. . . . Not a single detail loses its magic in this moving, impressive book: it reads like a ray of light, illuminating Western blind spots and foreign worlds. --Alexander Cammann, Die Zeit
