About the Author

Sir Max Mallowan was Agatha Christie's second husband and an eminent archaeologist in his own right. The marriage between Sir Max Mallowan and Dame Agatha Christie was one of unusual distinction - a union between the most celebrated exponent of the detective novel and an archaeologist of world renown whose discoveries in Mesopotamia rank with the most important of our time. He died in 1978, the year after this book was first published. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Larry N. Stout on December 8, 2012
Format: Paperback
Mallowan's style is very congenial, and his memoirs are as enlightening about places and times as they are enjoyable in the plentiful amusing -- even fascinating -- anecdotes of his very rich life, most of which was spent with his mystery-writer wife, Agatha Christie. He does devote quite a lot of space to the highlights of his archaeological discoveries -- which were, after all, rather monumental in every sense of the word! I have no reservations whatsoever in unequivocally recommending this fine specimen of autobiography to the widest possible audience. If you don't read it, you will be the poorer for it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This memoir is quite touching to read in that one gets a glimpse into the life of Sir Max Mallowan who was not only a great archaeologist but also the husband of the greatest mystery writer of all time, Agatha Christie.
