Back to Babylon, the seventh collection from London-based poet and writer, Agnes Meadows, is based on her visits to Iraq for the Babylon International Festival of Arts & Culture in 2012, 2014 and 2016, and the things she saw there.
As well as poetry, Back to Babylon includes the Blog she wrote during her 2012 visit. From convivial jasmine-scented nights in the old city of Babil to the horror and grief at Al-Mawahil with its mass grave of 13,000 disappeared Iraqis, her writing takes the reader ever closer to life in this troubled region.
Back to Babylon launched in October 2019. You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page, ISBN 978-1-911587-20-0, or from Amazon.
