Praise

“This is the work of a master: lean, elegant, and wise, weaving the doomed ambitions of two fallen empires into a compelling story that also deftly comments on the American presence in Iraq.”
—Andrea Barrett

Land of Marvels is up to Unsworth’s highest standard, featuring a cast of fascinating characters thrown together in the desert of Mesopotamia just before the Great War, all furiously digging for the past and turning up the future. American readers will recognize the landscape and learn some surprising facts about how we got exactly where we are right now. As well as a great read, Land of Marvels is an important book.”
—Valerie Martin

“An intriguing story, elegantly and eloquently told.”
—Peter Ackroyd
