"Howling in Mesopotamia" by Author Haidar Ala Hamoudi

"Howling in Mseopotamia" is about the return of Iraqi American Haidar Ala Hamoudi to his native homeland of Iraq following the toppling of the oppressive regime of dictator Sadam Hussein. Although he returned with hope, he was consumed with fears and concerns for his life. He grew up in America, in Ohio's large Iraqi-American community, and immigrated to Baghdad in 2003. Published by Beaufoort Books in New York (2008), Hamoudi offers an insight into the tragedy and transformation of Iraq that few others can provide with such intimacy and firsthand knowledge. Iraq isn't just a news story to Hamoudi. It is his life. Excellent, easy read.
