Someone Has Seen the New Banipal (37: Iraqi Writers)

It’s our friends at Kikah. They have a rundown of what to expect in the issue. It includes an excerpt from Mahdi Issa al-Saqr’s new book in English, available soon from AUC Press, East Winds, West Winds, flashes from Luay Hamza Abbas and Diya al-Jubaily, and “writers who are completely new to Western readers…Nazum al-Obeidi and Nassif Falak (who has his own hair-raising personal story of flight, capture on a number of borders and imprisonment in Abu Ghraib during the Saddam regime).”

Plus, much more. Should be coming…soon? Banipal itself is still promoting 36.
