Beschreibung

Marina Benjamin grew up in London, feeling estranged from her family's Middle Eastern ways, refusing to speak Arabic or eat their food. But when Benjamin had her own child a few years ago, she realised that she was losing her link to the past, inspiring a journey to Baghdad and into her family's history. Her discoveries will haunt anyone who seeks to understand a country whose ongoing struggles continue to command the world's attention. By turns moving and funny, Last Days in Babylon is an adventure story, a riveting history and a timely reminder that behind today's headlines are real people whose lives are caught in the crossfire of misunderstanding, prejudice and ambition.

Marina Benjamin has worked as a journalist for fifteen years. She was arts editor of the New Statesman and deputy arts editor at the Evening Standard, and has written columns for the Daily Express and Scotland on Sunday. Her last book, Rocket Dreams, was shortlisted for the Eugene M. Emme Award. Marina lives in London with her husband and daughter.

'Benjamin tells their story fluently, cogently and with well-modulated empathy. It is a tale worth reading'
