Someone on Twitter (can’t remember who!) mentioned this memoir of Christie’s years as an archaeologist–or archaeologist’s wife? I found that it’s a gentler and more witty version of Christie’s writing, full of funny stories about herself and the others in the expedition. Also, sadly, full of paternalistic racism & imperialism. She’s maybe slightly more self-aware here? but it’s still very present.
Pretty typical Christie, with maybe a slightly larger emphasis on the psychological details. It’s one that I both enjoy and argue with in my head a lot. Hugh Fraser read the audiobook and I would really just like for him to read all of the audiobooks for everything. He’s great with voices and narration.
