Episode 8: Iraq + 100

April 23, 2019

Rudi Dornemann talks to Anoud about her short story "Kahramana" in the anthology Iraq + 100 (download from iTunes or Soundcloud)


Anoud is the pseudonym of an Iraqi-born author. 


Iraq + 100 collects stories by Iraqi authors all set  a century after the American- and British led invasion. The Atlantic said of the anthology, "Dazzling and disorienting, these stories are not just reflections of turmoil, but also yearnings for peace and a connection with Iraq’s past grandeur."


Comma Press publisher and editor Ra Page tells us how the anthology came to be. (A US  edition of Iraq + 100 was published by Tor Books.) 


Anna Simpson, a futurist and writer, describes what interested her about Iraq + 100.

Anoud and Ra both mentioned Banthology, which contains another of Anoud's stories.

Ra talked about the forthcoming Palestine + 100 anthology.

And if you were curious about the sustainable futures performance piece/agribusiness conference opener that Anna talked about, there's a video.
