I have nothing but praise for Shusha Guppy’s excellent book on the Levant... Her insights into the Near East... Her facility with history, art, religions and poetry of those ancient regions... Her traveller’s fascination... These, and many other delights, are presented to us with a captivating informality. – Patrick Leigh Fermor Of previous works by the author: “ The Blindfold Horse is a deeply moving book, evoking a whole civilization which was shaken to dust by the 1979 revolution.” – Anthony Smith, The Times “Looking Back is a feast. A galaxy of remarkable ladies, rendered by the remarkable Shusha Guppy.” – Edna O’Brien
