Award-winning novelist Elizabeth Laird has gathered together the very best Iraqi stories during her time in the Middle East stories ranging from thieving porcupines who get their come-uppance to the hilarious tale of the chaos caused by a handsome stranger who knocks at a house inside which lurks a marriageable daughter.
