What I Heard About Iraq by Eliot Weinberger
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Iraq war has unleashed such a torrent of opinion...impassioned polemic, neo-con apologia, world-weary cynicism...that it feels like the important truths are being lost in a media feeding-frenzy. Eliot Weinberger eschews the rhetoric of the soapbox in an extraordinary montage of facts, sound-bites and testimonies. He assembles an uncompromising and blackly comic narrative, which permits the voices of the war to speak for themselves, and allows the protagonists to damn themselves in their own words.

Author Biography

Eric Weinberger is an essayist and translator. His edition of Jorges Luis Borges's Selected Non-Fictions (1999) received the National Book Critics Circle prize for criticism, and he is the primary translator of the work of Octavio Paz into English. In 1992 he was given PEN's first Gregory Kolovakos Award for his work promoting Hispanic literature in the United States, and in 2000 he was the first American literary writer to be awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle by the government of Mexico. His most recent publications are the collection of essays Karmic Traces: 1993-1999 and a translation of Bei Dao's Unlock (with Iona Man-Cheong). He lives in New York City.
