Mirror to Damascus

Colin Thubron / Seán Barrett
Described by the author as simply 'a work of love' Mirror to Damascus provides an enthralling and fascinating history of Damascus from the Amorites of the Bible to the revolution of 1966 as well as being a charming and witty personal record of a city well-loved.In explaining how modern Damascus is rooted in immemorial layers of culture and tradition Colin Thubron explores the historical artistic social and religious inheritance of the Damascenes in an amusing and perceptive manner whilst interspersing the narrative with innumerable anecdotes about travellers of bygone days.Mirror to Damascus is a unique portrait of a city now obscured by recent upheavals by one of the most indefatigable and popular of travel writers.
