I'm very happy (and honored) to find Baghdad Central has made one list of "year's best." India Stoughton reviews literature over at The Daily Star, and this is what she has to say about the top Mideast novels of the past year:
The problem with a year-in-review summary of fiction is that it leaves busy readers no chance to form their own opinions of the work. Happily, good books don’t age. So here are six of the more interesting works of fiction with a Middle East focus published in 2014. If you didn’t catch them this year, consider putting them on your reading list for 2015.
To see what titles she recommended, take a peek here.
