The paper presents two novels by an Iraqi writer Inaam Kachachi (born in 1952) – Sawaqi al-quloob (Streams of hearts, 2005) and Tashari (2013). Both works deal with one of the most important topics in contemporary Iraqi literature, i.e. exile. The first part of the paper describes the lives of the main characters in these novels, who mainly reside in Paris, while its second part concentrates on their reflections on exile. Particular attention was paid to spatial and temporal metaphors which were employed by the author to express the protagonists’ thoughts and feelings. Their reflections were set in the context of theoretical considerations about exile by prominent intellectuals, such as Edward Said, as well as those about experiencing space, which were the focus of Yi-Fu Tuan’s attention and of other researchers.
