  • Hassan Blasim - Literature North West
    expectations in an unflinching comedy of the macabre these stories manage to be both phantasmagoric and shockingly real light in touch yet steeped in personal nightmare For all their despair and darkness though what lingers more than the haunting images of war or the insanity of those who would benefit from it is the spirit of defiance the indefatigable courage of those few characters keeping faith with what remains of human intelligence Together these stories represent the first major literary work about the war from an Iraqi perspective List Price 7 99 Price 6 75 Details ISBN 978190558325 Publisher Comma Press Genre Short Fiction Extent 120pp The Iraqi Christ A soldier with the ability to predict the future finds himself blackmailed by an insurgent into the ultimate act of terror A deviser of crosswords survives a car bomb attack only to discover he is now haunted by one of its victims Fleeing a robbery a Baghdad shopkeeper falls into a deep hole at the bottom of which sits a djinni and the corpse of a soldier from a completely different war From legends of the desert to horrors of the forest Blasim s stories blend the fantastic with the everyday the surreal with the all too real Taking his cues from Kafka his prose shines a dazzling light into the dark absurdities of Iraq s recent past and the torments of its countless refugees The subject of this his second collection is primarily trauma and the curious strategies human beings adopt to process it including of course fiction The result is a masterclass in metaphor a new kind of story telling forged in the crucible of war and just as shocking At first you receive Blasim with the kind of shocked applause you d award a fairly transgressive stand up

  • Mirja Unge - Literature North West
    hand Titles by Mirja Unge It Was Just Yesterday On Christmas Eve a girl stalks an older man through wintery city streets haunted by their shared past In a remote woodland cottage an eccentric explains to his granddaughter why he shoots cats whenever they make themselves too comfortable In a checkout queue a woman suddenly shows charity to a penniless guy she apparently doesn t know The characters in Mirja Unge s debut collection are all in their own way evading something whether failing to confront the true nature of an encounter or avoiding responsibilities as a parent sibling or friend Abuse betrayal and neglect lurk beneath a veneer of mutually maintained normality waiting for an opportunity to resurface Told in most cases through the eyes of teenage girls or young women these stories exhibit a unique prose style that perfectly captures the conversational rhythms and preoccupations of their generation Unge s soft winding syntax ushers the reader across the surface of each encounter at an unalterable pace like the ever betraying passage of time whilst deftly hinting at the violence beneath A breathtaking and intensive read full of warmth humour and darkness Moa Eriksson Hallandsposten Mirja Unge has once
