What will Iraq be like 100 years after the American invasion of 2003? That’s the question, Iraqi author Hassan Blasim asked 10 of his fellow writers to address in short stories or a book called Iraq + 100. One of those Iraqi writers is Anoud al-Anoud. Like most of her colleagues, Anoud predicts an Iraq still dominated by foreigners. Especially American foreigners. Again, like almost all her colleagues, Anoud al-Anoud finds today’s Iraq an uncomfortable place to write in and lives as an expatriate.
