- Ziolkowski, S, "“THE WORD ILLEGAL DIDN’T MAKE SENSE ANYMORE”". Public Books (October, 2019).
A review of Igiaba Scego's "Beyond Babylon," which weaves together diverse perspectives—on colonial Italy, pre-revolution Somalia, Argentina’s desaparecidos, bisexuality, racism, sexual violation, learning Arabic in Tunisia, and life in Rome—from five different viewpoints: two daughters (Zuhra and Mar), their respective mothers (Maryam and Miranda), and a father (Elias).
