      About The Book

      A soldier with the ability to predict the future finds himself blackmailed by an insurgent into the ultimate act of terror…

      A deviser of crosswords survives a car-bomb attack, only to discover he is now haunted by one of its victims…

      Fleeing a robbery, a Baghdad shopkeeper falls into a deep hole, at the bottom of which sits a djinni and the corpse of a soldier from a completely different war…

      From legends of the desert to horrors of the forest, Blasim’s stories blend the fantastic with the everyday, the surreal with the all-too-real. Taking his cues from Kafka, his prose shines a dazzling light into the dark absurdities of Iraq’s recent past and the torments of its countless refugees. The subject of this, his second collection, is primarily trauma and the curious strategies human beings adopt to process it (including, of course, fiction). The result is a masterclass in metaphor — a new kind of story-telling, forged in the crucible of war, and just as shocking.
