Baghdad Burning for Literary Prize

The RiverbendBlog, popularly known as Baghdad Burning, is on the list for the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction writing. Great going Riverbend.. [ link ] This is something more noteworthy than a book deal...


Riverbend began the blog in September 2003 with the words: “I’m female, Iraqi and 24. I survived the war. That’s all you need to know. It’s all that matters these days anyway.” I have been reading riverbend for that long. I was inspired and I even wanted to start an anonymous blog writing about the plight and real truths of Manipur, but then I figured out that people would suspect it was me anyway.

No other Manipuri bloggers, eh? Too bad Yumyum didn't start a blog after all :)
