> Baghdad In No Particular Order








ARIGE
loves Britney Spears and Westlife. She is the granddaughter of Noori Al Rawi, the painter. She is alive.




NOORI
is the grandfather of Areej and a painter and former television personality in Iraq. He (had?) a museum devoted to his work in Southern Baghdad.



SIHAR
is the mother of Areej and daughter of Noori. Her brother is in the US and has not seen him in more than two decades. Whenever I said his name, she began to cry.









ARIGE's BROTHER
is quiet and sweet. I'm ashamed that I forgot his name. It happens, doesn't it, that each order has an exception?
