Frankenstein in Baghdad is a must read! I recently finished it this week and I must say I’m very impressed with this translation and even more so with the story, it’s magical realism mixed with Middle Eastern mysticism.  The cast of characters blend together like the creature #Frankenstein itself does, the way he’s sewn together from different parts.  The idiosyncrasies of these characters coming together are symbolic of how the cultures meshed together in a post war-torn #iraq.
