An anonymous blog by a young woman in war-torn Iraq has been longlisted for BBC Four's Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction. Baghdad Burning, a first-hand account written under the pseudonym Riverbend, is one of 19 books in contention. (BBC News)
A blogger with a book? She's not the only one. RLC created a book from 89 of his blog posts.
Riverbend's site can be found here. She's a fellow Blogspotter. She writes with an insider's view of the war with Iraq, and she appears to be no fan of the current presidential administration.
