From the Iran?Iraq War through the Occupation, this collection of fictional short stories presents an uncompromising view of the relationship between the West and Iraq, as well as a haunting critique of the postwar refugee experience.

Immaginate un uomo rapito e costretto a dichiarare in video di aver commesso atroci crimini in nome della religione. Oppure un viaggio di clandestini diretti in Europa che si trasforma in una carneficina. Immaginate un soldato che, rimasto chiuso in una stanza per diversi giorni con la sua amata, per sopravvivere si nutre del suo corpo e del suo sangue. Cadaveri che parlano, lupi mannari, teste...
Wie erzählt man von einem Land, das sich seit 35 Jahren im Krieg befindet? Von Geiselnehmern in Bagdad, der institutionalisierten Paranoia unter Saddam, dem Soldaten mit den hellseherischen Fähigkeiten, den Hasen in der Grünen Zone, dem Lied der Ziegen, den 1001 Messern und dem Mehlsack voller Köpfe? Wie erzählt man von der Psyche des Krieges, von dem alltäglichen Horror, der immer mehr...
