SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2018



WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL PRIZE FOR ARABIC FICTION



’Extraordinary… A devastating but essential read.’ Kevin Powers, bestselling author and National Book Award finalist for The Yellow Birds



’Gripping, darkly humorous…profound.’ Phil Klay, bestselling author and National Book Award winner for Redeployment



From the rubble-strewn streets of US-occupied Baghdad, the scavenger Hadi collects human body parts and stitches them together to create a corpse. His goal, he claims, is for the government to recognize the parts as people and give them a proper burial. But when the corpse goes missing, a wave of eerie murders sweeps the city, and reports stream in of a horrendous-looking criminal who, though shot, cannot be killed. Hadi soon realises he has created a monster, one that needs human flesh to survive – first from the guilty, and then from anyone who crosses its path.



An extraordinary achievement, Frankenstein in Baghdad captures with white-knuckle horror and black humour the surreal reality of a city at war.
