Iraqi author Hassan Blasim launches his debut short story collection, The Madman of Freedom Square.

Hassan Blasim is a filmmaker, short-story writer and refugee of the Iraq War. His debut collection (yet to be published in the original Arabic) is a dark excursion into the chaos of contemporary Baghdad, an allegorical snapshot of recent Iraqi history (spanning over twenty years from the Iran-Iraq War through to the Occupation), and a rare critique of the refugee experience in Europe.

Blasim will be reading stories in the original Arabic with English surtitles, and discussing his life and work.
