Mr Eugenides reproduces this photo of a smiling GI and two boys in Iraq. He writes,
“Any Arabic readers out there will particularly appreciate what the boy in the middle has written (or had printed?) on his impromptu cardboard sign, which Mr Eugenides’ multilingual mother kindly translated for him this morning”
Interested non-readers of Arabic will be pleased to know he reproduces his mother’s translation here.
