Sinan Antoon

I got a copy of Antoon's I'jaam from City Lights in SF last week. It's recommended from Etel Adnan, Saadi Youssef, and Chris Abani, and I can't wait to read it. From the back cover: "An inventory of the General Security headquarters in central Baghdad reveals an obscure manuscript. Written by a young man in detention, the prose moves from prison life, to adolescent memories, to frightening hallucinations, and what emerges is a portrait of life in Saddam Hussein's Iraq."
