Baghdad Burning: longlisted for Samuel Johnson Prize

Baghdad Burning is blog of Riverbend. As diary of this young Iraqi woman, the blog gives an insight in the destroyed country that is almost impossible to get through other media. Journalism has become almost impossible since Iraq has fallen in complete anarchy. Therefore, the jury of the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction has put the blog in their long list. To my knowledge it is the first time a blog is nominated (even though it only is a longlist) for such an award.
