Review: Farewell, Babylon: Coming of Age in Jewish Baghdad

User Review  - Adrian Brown - Goodreads

Interesting account of life in pre-1948 Jewish Baghdad, although not as flowing due to obvious translation of the work (it was originally published in French). Still good for those interested in Middle Eastern history. Read full review

Review: Farewell, Babylon: Coming of Age in Jewish Baghdad

User Review  - Hilary Hicklin - Goodreads

A coming-of-age memoir of a Jewish boy in Baghdad in the 1940s; I learnt a few new things but this is a poor translation which really marred any pleasure in the book. Had I known it was originally published in French I would have read it in that language. Read full review
