Product description

Agatha Christie's personal memoirs about her travels to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s with her archaeologist husband Max Mallowan, where she worked on the digs and wrote some of her most evocative novels. Includes unpublished material and new photographs. Think you know Agatha Christie? Think again! Agatha Christie's personal memoirs about her travels to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s with her archaeologist husband Max Mallowan is a fascinating true-life adventure. Agatha worked on the digs and wrote some of her most evocative novels while living among the working men in tents in the desert. This new edition includes unpublished material and new photographs. Agatha Christie was already well known as a crime writer when she accompanied her second husband, Max Mallowan, to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s. She took enormous interest in all his excavations, working on the digs and helping to clean and catalogue the discoveries. When friends asked what her strange life was like, she decided to answer their questions in this delightful book.
