Girl Blog from Iraq

"Girl Blog from Iraq" by an anonymous young Iraqi woman whose weblog has now been adapted into a theatrical documentary at the Edinburgh Fringe arts festival.The blog was praised by the New York Times as "articulate,
even poetic prose packs an emotional punch while exhibiting a
journalist’s eye for detail".
I happened to check her blog and it brought me a deep grief reading the realities of war. Now her blog entries were nominated for a major literary prize in Britain.
And this what the world knows about her. As she says,

A little bit about myself: I’m female, Iraqi and 24. I survived the
war. That’s all you need to know. It’s all that matters these days
anyway.
