Marina Benjamin: writing the story of the Jews of Baghdad

'My name is Marina Benjamin and I wrote most of my last book, The Last Days in Babylon, at the British Library.

I was here almost every day from morning until evening and it was a very pleasant place to write. It's cleaner than my office, it has many more books than my office and, should you want company, you can find it in the café and I had access to this marvellous wealth of material that I cannot imagine being able to access anywhere else.'
