Two young writers from Syria and Iraq. Rasha Abbas und Hassan Blasim. In Europe, they continue to work on their stories: Close to the surreal, but only because the facts of life irritate reality. Somewhere between Kafka and Gogol, if they had lived in the 21st century. Hassan Blasim reads from his short-story collection Madman of Freedom Square and Rasha Abbas from her latest stories.
