Taking Mesopotamia by Jenny Lewis

Posted on May 08th 2014

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful, and as always with Jenny Lewis, a thought-provoking, sensitive book of prose, poetry, interviews and pictures. Jenny’s loving search for her late father during his time serving in WW1 Mesopotamia and the contextualisation of modern day war in Iraq make this an evocative and timeless account of the helpless stupidity of conflict. Beautifully crafted and evoked.
