Weam Namou

Author Weam Namouabout this book: Today there are some 30,000 books about Iraq, but there are less than a dozen Iraqi-American authors, and they are mostly poets. This is despite the fact that the U.S. has been involved with Iraq for over a hundred years. Since 2003, lifelong contracts have been signed with this country and almost 100,000 Iraqis have fled to the U.S. And now with ISIS' formation, a new political relationship has been formed. Hopefully, my third novel, The Flavor of Cultures, will help put a little weight on the empty side of the scale.

There are two ways that one can better understand another group of people and their culture: by interacting with them in person or by reading their stories. By writing true life stories, I hope to dis-spell the many myths and misconceptions about the Iraqi American community.

The Flavor of Cultures is the story of one young Iraqi American girl's desire for having individuality while maintaining her tribal lifestyle escorts her to the discovery of unexpected cultures and beliefs.
