Carol Isaacs speaker

‘The belief is current among Baghdadi Jews that the wolf keeps away spirits and demons.’ David Sassoon, scholar, 1917

Carol Isaac’s graphic memoir of a lost homeland revisits the old Jewish Quarter of 1940s Baghdad, home to a third of the city’s population which witnessed the death or expulsion of almost its entire community of 150,000. Journeying among its ghostly former inhabitants, she brings to life a lost world.

Carol Isaacs is a musician and, as The Surreal McCoy, a well-known cartoonist published in the New Yorker, Spectator and Private Eye. She has played with Sinead O’Connor, Indigo Girls and is co-founder of the London Klezmer Quartet.

Marina Benjamin is an author and senior editor at Aeon Magazine. She is a former arts editor of the New Statesman magazine and deputy arts editor of the Evening Standard newspaper in London. Marina’s latest autobiographical work, Insomnia, was published in 2018.
