Jalal Barzanji's First Book in English

Kurdish poet  and Writers Beyond Borders member, Jalal Barzanji, has his first book in English published by the University of Alberta Press. 

"The style of my book must be in small pieces, as my life has been in pieces", says Jalal, who completed The Man in Blue Pyjamas: A Prison Memoir 
while he was Edmonton's first Writer-in-Exile in 2007-2008. This is a story of assimilated people who have been forgotten. It has no political agenda and true to humanity in general.

Please join me in congratulating Jalal!
