'Last Days in Babylon is a marvel ... An amalgam of political commentary, history and personal memoir it offers a poignant testimony to an obliterated people' Sunday Times 'An intelligent and heartfelt book' Sunday Telegraph 'Much more than a biography. Benjamin provides an impassioned account of a multi-ethnic society and an incisive expose of the twentieth-century political vicissitudes which transformed the Middle East ... This is a history unknown even to most Jews. Benjamin narrates it fluently and passionately' Independent 'Benjamin tells their story fluently, cogently and with well-modulated empathy. It is a tale worth reading' Evening StandardReseña del editor:
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 realized 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.
