I Stared at the Night of the City

by Bakhtiyar Ali, translated from the Kurdish by Kareem Abdulrahman
£9.99   paperback  Garnet Publishing Ltd (Periscope) (2016)

I Stared at the Night of the City by Bakhtiyar Ali, translated from the Kurdish by Kareem Abdulrahman Iraqi Kurdistan at the turn of the twenty-first century is a territory ruled by strongmen, revolutionaries, fixers, bureaucrats and the “Barons” who control everything from livestock and land to Kurdish cultural life.
 
Defying the absolute power wielded by the Barons, a band of friends led by a poet embarks on an odyssey to find the bodies of two lovers killed unjustly by the authorities. The Barons respond by attempting to crush these would-be avengers, though their real war is waged against the imagination itself – a prized, elusive commodity for which intellectuals, merchants, political elites and humble workers all search in one way or another.
