The Last of the Angels (Hardback)

Fadil al-Azzawi


Set in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk during the 1950s, "The Last of the Angels" tells the slyly humorous tale of three strikingly different people in one small neighborhood: the revolutionary Hameed Nylon, the butcher Khidir Musa, and a young boy named Burhan Abdullah who discovers an old chest that lets him talk to angels. By turns satiric, picaresque, and apocalyptic, the novel paints a loving and elegiac portrait of Kirkuk in the final years of Iraq's monarchy - a moving tale of growing up in a dangerous world.
