In the Last Book of Baghdad, Justin Sirois explores a world where, under desperate conditions, a lost collection of poems might be able to save a person's life. We see Nisreen Abid robbed of two beloved things: Al Mutanabbi Street-the literary hub of Baghdad-and her husband. With Al Mutanabbi Street in ruins, Nisreen tricks a book printer to help her locate her kidnapped husband while navigating the deadly city.

Baghdad is burning out of control. Little does she know, the book she uses as ransom to get her husband back will be the most important book of her life. Justin Sirois is at the peak of his powers, crafting prose inside historical contexts largely ignored by Western media. Sirois is exploring what would easily be hidden, a world that is as real as it is ready to be revealed: The Last Book of Baghdad proves that the power of a dead poet's words are enough to transcend war's many tortures.
