9780006375944: Come, Tell Me How You Live: An Archaeological Memoir

Agatha Christie’s memoirs about her travels to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s with her archaeologist husband Max Mallowan

Agatha Christie was already well known as a crime writer when she accompanied her husband, Max Mallowan, to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s. She took enormous interest in all his excavations, and when friends asked what her strange life was like, she decided to answer their questions in this delightful book.

First published in 1946, Come, Tell Me How You Live is now published with an introduction by Jacquetta Hawkes. It gives a charming picture of Agatha Christie herself, and is, as Jacquetta Hawkes concludes, ‘a pure pleasure to read’.

From the Back Cover:

Agatha Christie was already well known as a crime writer when she accompanied her husband, Max Mallowan, to Syria and Iraq in the 1930s. She took enormous interest in all his excavations, and when friends asked what her strange life was like, she decided to answer their questions in this delightful book.

First published in 1946, 'Come, Tell Me How You Live' gives a charming picture of Agatha Christie herself, while also giving insight into some of her most popular novels, including 'Murder in Mesopotamia' and 'Appointment with Death'. It is, as Jacquetta Hawkes concludes in her introduction, “ a pure pleasure to read”.
