520    "An explosive new voice in fiction emerges from Iraq in 
       this blistering debut by "perhaps the best writer of 
       Arabic fiction alive" (The Guardian) The first major 
       literary work about the Iraq War from an Iraqi perspective,
       The Corpse Exhibition shows us the war as we have never 
       seen it before. Here is a world not only of soldiers and 
       assassins, hostages and car bombers, refugees and 
       terrorists, but also of madmen and prophets, angels and 
       djinni, sorcerers and spirits. Blending shocking realism 
       with flights of fantasy, Hassan Blasim offers us a pageant
       of horrors, as haunting as the photos of Abu Ghraib and as
       difficult to look away from, but shot through with a 
       gallows humor that yields an unflinching comedy of the 
       macabre. Gripping and hallucinatory, this is a new kind of
       storytelling forged in the crucible of war"--|cProvided by
