Najem Wali in Harper's

"Wars in Distant Lands," a short story by Najem Wali, appears in the February issue of Harper's. I'm disproportionately happy about this. It's almost never that a translated Arabic story makes it into the top-tier mags.

I read his story this afternoon and loved it, loved it. He's the first Iraqi fiction writer I've encountered - wow.
