Dreaming of Baghdad

'“Deftly sketched, simple and poetic . . . Zangana’s story is heartbreaking, but her clarity and resilience inspire awe.” —Christian Parenti, author of The Freedom: Shadows and Hallucinations in Occupied Iraq   “Written with passion and commitment, Dreaming of Baghdad invoked my own dreams, and the joys and pain that memory can bring. A must-read.” —Nawal El Saadawi, author of Zeina   “Haifa Zangana illuminates the dark realities of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq while remembering what she misses from that complex place and time.” —Shahrnush Parsipur, author of Tuba and the Meaning of Night   “Haifa Zangana proves once again that the act of writing can be truly liberating.” —Dalia Said Mostafa, Lecturer in Arabic and Comparative Literature at The University of Manchester   “How poorer the world would have been without Haifa Zangana’s courageous testimony. Drop anything you are reading and grab hold of a copy of this magnificent book.” —Hamid Dabashi, Professor of Iranian Studies and Comparative Literature at Columbia University'
