Presents a funny portrait of the inhabitants of an apartment block in Baghdad, juxtaposing the days of plenty and the tragic state of the country during the period of wars and sanctions. Transcending its underlying layer of betrayal and mistrust, this is a novel about people's quirks, their enduring emotions, and about survival.
