Huda Al-Hassani

Huda A. Al-Hassani was born in 16th Jan 1983 in Basrah, Iraq to be the youngest daughter for a family consisted of father, mother, three brothers and three sisters. It was essential in her nurturing to appreciate literature and arts. After she pursued her B.A. in English Language at University of Basrah/ Basrah/ Iraq and MA in Contemporary Literature & Culture at Brunel University/ London/ UK, she started to work as a lecturer at University of Mosul/Mosul/Iraq to teach general literature, novel and drama in English. Then, she began with writing. She also directed and edited a one- act play in English to be rewarded the first rank for both directing and editing in Mosul University's Creativity Competition.


About Book

Huda Al-Hassani's new collection of short stories reveals a writer of the widest possible range. It encompasses visions as contrasting as a dystopian narrative of an Iraq despoiled by invaders and prey to terrorist violence; a charming fairy tale in which the wicked witch who has seized the kingdom's crown is dispossessed in favour of the rightful heirs; and a ghost story in which a newly graduating student discovers in her former home a shocking and terrifying revelation about her own father's true nature and identity. Through all these stories, up to and including the book's final, memorable parable of a citizen of contemporary Iraq who visits the ancestral kingdom of Ur in a time machine, what remains constant is Al-Hassani's restless, inexhaustible invention. Ten Short Stories introduces the world of a writer whose imagination knows few limits, a world which readers can now explore from themselves.
