About the Author

Marina Benjamin has worked as a journalist for fifteen years.

Her last book, Rocket Dreams, was shortlisted for the Eugene M. Emme Award. Marina lives in London with her husband and daughter.


'Last Days in Babylon is a marvel ... An amalgam of political commentary, history and personal memoir it offers a poignant testimony to an obliterated people' Sunday Times 'An intelligent and heartfelt book' Sunday Telegraph 'Much more than a biography. Benjamin provides an impassioned account of a multi-ethnic society and an incisive expose of the twentieth-century political vicissitudes which transformed the Middle East ... This is a history unknown even to most Jews. Benjamin narrates it fluently and passionately' Independent 'Benjamin tells their story fluently, cogently and with well-modulated empathy. It is a tale worth reading' Evening Standard
