The Baghdad Blogger

Baghdad Blogger

Baghdad blogger Salam Pax has become a bit of a media star in the UK. The Guardian, who publish his work, have a piece on why he started blogging and how he played cat-and-mouse with the Iraqi secret police 'I became the profane pervert Arab blogger'. And he was on the Today programme this morning with a charming interview. You can read the Today webchat transcript too. Now he has a book out. Whether the immediacy and drama of a weblog can translate to the somewhat different media of books is an open question.


Check out the website for this book, including a sample chapter.
