Nostalgia, My Enemy collects some of the best of Saadi Youssef’s most recent poems from the last decade, since the on-going American-led war in his home country of Iraq. In direct, penetrating language, translated from the original Arabic by Sinan Antoon and Peter Money, Youssef’s poems dwell on the casualties of the war, the loss of his country, the role of the writer in exile, the atrocities of Saddam Hussein and the inhumane acts perpetrated by American military at Abu Ghraib. This is a powerful collection from the leading poet of the Arab world.
