StoryTalk is a roundtable appreciating short fiction a single story at a time.
In this episode, Adam al-Sirgany, Matthew K. Schmidt, and Ingrid Wenzler discuss Hassan Blasim’s story “The Green Zone Rabbit,” from his 2013 collection The Iraqi Christ (trans. Johnathan Wright).
StoryTalk is a production of the Iowa-based arts and education nonprofit 1-Week Critique (1WC), which provides pedagogical resources and editorial support to students and teachers of the literary arts. You can learn more about our programs or support our work by visiting 1weekcritique.com.
NB: Across StoryTalk, we occasionally discuss difficult issues of many kinds. While we believe that literature is one of the appropriate venues in which to speak to material that can be disturbing, we recognize not all individuals are best served by engaging all matters directly. We hope you'll view as it's right for you.
