Salam Pax: the Baghdad Blog by Salam Pax

Regular price $14.50 Sale

In September 2002 a 29-year-old Iraqi man living in Baghdad began publishing a diary on the internet. He adopted the name Salam Pax and wrote in complete secrecy. He was taking a terrible risk in writing freely about the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. As war approached, millions around the world found their way to Salam's daily weblog to read his funny and frightening reports of life in a city crippled by fear and slipping into chaos. Then the bombs began to fall... There's something quite remarkable about the experience of reading Salam Pax, especially for those who read him during the war. Here is an unedited voice from another culture, writing in a way that instantly reminds us how much alike we are, across different cultures and continents. The Baghdad Blog was published simultaneously in Australia by Text Publishing, in the UK by Atlantic Books and in the USA by Grove/Atlantic. This 2003 Text Publishing Paperback is in Good condition.
