The Corpse Exhibition: And Other Stories of IraqThe Corpse Exhibition: And Other Stories of Iraq by Hassan Blasim

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A powerful and poignant collection of short stories set in present-day Iraq. The book focused on the psychological and social damages of the wars that the country has seen over the last generation. However, the book is hopeful and optimistic, even in the midst of heartbreak and devastation, mixing the very real with the surreal. It is not a book for the faint of heart or faint of stomach, but it is gut-wrenching and important and beautifully written. Highly recommended.
