Dreams from the war

How do you write humorously about the grotesque character of everyday life in wartime? How can you dream when reality insistently intrudes?

In his short story collection Jokes for the Gunmen, Palestinian-Icelander Mazen Maarouf writes with humour, force and intelligence about daily life in the midst of war. He meets literary researcher Daniel Medin for a conversation about how laughter can save us from reality, but also teach us something new.

In English.
