Armchair travel at its best, by one of the greatest authors who ever lived!
This is a wonderfully descriptive, and sometimes funny, account of several of the archaeological digs conducted by Max Mallowan, husband of Agatha Christie Mallowan. She describes the scenery and the people of the Middle East with a genuine fondness that almost glows at times. I had already read many of her books when I read this one, but this book helped me to understand how thoroughly she knew the country and the customs when she wrote the books that took place in the Middle East. She starts with her decision to accompany Max on the first dig, includes her journey on the Orient Express, and gives a jovial description of life on the dig.
