A Year In Baghdad Reviews
As another reviewer has pointed out, the author is not the folk singer Joan Baez, but her parents Albert Baez and Joan Baez, Sr. Their middle daughter, Joan, who was ten at the time, did the drawings, and the youngest daughter, Mimi, wrote the Foreword. The book describes the year the couple and their three daughters lived in Iraq, the United Nations having invited Albert to be a visiting professor of physics in Baghdad. I enjoyed the book and am thinking of rereading it.
The author is NOT the folk singer but her parents, Albert and the elder Joan Baez. A first hand retrospective account of a American family's time in Baghdad in the 1950s. Who knew Joan Baez's dad was a physics prof? The famous Joan was all of nine when they made the trip. A refreshingly frank memoir.
Easy to read with plenty of detailed descriptions of at the time life in Baghdad. I really enjoyed reading it and will reread times and times again.
