Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863566359, Paperback)

Maged is working nights as a London taxi driver. By day he’s a news junkie, hooked on broadcasts from his native war-torn Iraq, and desperate for news of his family. He recalls Saddam Hussein’s rise to power and his escape to England, where he meets his future wife, Carole, in the lingerie section of a department store in Liverpool. From the idyll of his Iraqi childhood through the harsh realities of 1980s Britain, Maged’s recollections are filled with a deep affection for his Iraqi and British homes.

Maged Kadar, a former London cab driver, now teaches Arabic and Islamic culture to British troops.
