Reissue of Christie's narrative of an archaeological expedition she undertook with her husband, Sir Max Mallowan (published in 1946).


Come, Tell Me How You Live is a short book of autobiography and travel literature by crime writer Agatha Christie. It is one of only two books she wrote and had published under both of her married names of "Christie" and "Mallowan" (the other being Star Over Bethlehem and other stories) and was first published in the UK in November 1946 by William Collins and Sons and in the same year in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company.


On May 25 2012, Cat 4 Paws said:
A must for Agatha junkies, although not her usual fare. It is an account of her journeys to Syria with her archaeologist husband, Max Mallowan. As Agatha says, "It is, in fact, small beer--a very little book, full of every day doings and happenings." It is comical at times, and sad at times. It also gives an unintended view of the attitudes and standards of westerners in a backward Middle Eastern country in the 1930s. Still, beautifully written. The book itself was "used - like new" and was in perfect condition, leather bound, and from a "collection". Delivery was prompt. I think I love this site. Prices were lower than Amazon.
