An Iraqi-American Memoir

Monday, April 14, 2008

Haider Ala Hamoudi is the American-born son of two Iraqi parents. Many of his relatives still live in Iraq, and he himself returned to Baghdad to work on a USAID contract. In a new book, Howling in Mesopotamia: An Iraqi-American Memoir, he writes about what he’s seen recently in Iraq and his frustration with the situation there.

Excellent discussion. Perhaps it fits into my preconceptions and that is why I say this but it seems very reality based and informative, not spin, not ideological. As Colbert says, reality has a liberal bias.
