  • Ahmed Saadawi

    I believe this is a rough translation - The Iraqi writer Ahmed Abdel Kadhim Al-Azzawi experiences his first novel experience (Sofia) in a different way. He writes it directly in English. The novel's events, characters, and places are in London, with a touch of exoticism and science fiction. The novel, which was recently published by Austin Macauley Publishing in London, is an addition to the path of diversity and openness to experiences in Iraqi literary writing, and a boldness in breaking into a different language. Congratulations, dear Ahmed, and more successes.
