520    Saleh Abdoh, the narrator of Out of Mesopotamia, is a 
       middle-aged Iranian journalist who moonlights as a writer 
       for one of Iran's most popular TV shows, but cannot keep 
       himself away from the front lines in neighboring Iraq and 
       Syria. There, the fight against the Islamic State is a 
       proxy war, an existential battle, a declaration of faith, 
       and, for some, a passing weekend affair.  After weeks 
       spent dodging RPGs and witnessing acts of savagery and 
       stupidity, Saleh returns to his civilian life of Tehran 
       bookstore readings and trendy art openings and finds it to
       be an unbearably dislocating experience. Pursued by the 
       woman who broke his heart, his official handler from state
       security (who wants him for questioning over a suspicious 
       volume of Proust), and the screenwriters with whom he is 
       supposed to be collaborating, Saleh has reason to flee 
       again from everyday life-but not necessarily to discard 
       it. Surrounded by men whose willingness to achieve 
       martyrdom both fascinates and appalls him, Saleh struggles
       to make sense of himself and the turmoil that surrounds 
       him.  An unprecedented glimpse into the fight against the 
       Islamic State from a Middle Eastern perspective, Out of 
       Mesopotamia follows in the tradition of the Western canon 
       of martial writers, but then subverts and expands upon it 
       before completely blowing it apart. Drawing on firsthand 
       experience, it gives agency to the voiceless while 
       offering a meditation on war that is moving, humane, 
       darkly funny, and resonantly true.
