Working withMoreUK poets Jen Hadfield, winner of the TS Eliot Prize, Billy Letford, Krystelle Bamford, and John Glenday collaborate with four contemporary Iraqi poets, including acclaimed Zahir Mousa, Sabreen Kadhim, and Kurdish Iraqi, Awezan Nouri.

Working with literal translations of the Arabic and Kurdish poems, the English language poets have created new versions, startling works that channel the anger, fear, hurt, hope, joy, and fragile optimism of the originals, reconnecting readers with the realities of real life in post-invasion Iraq, far beyond the banalities of cyclical western media stories. What if it was our culture, our country that was invaded? is the question asked. This Room is Waiting fashions an extraordinary portrait of a country rebuilding after war.
