After September 11, Americans who had never given much thought to the Middle East turned to Lewis for an explanation. In this witty memoir he reflects on the events that have transformed the region since World War II, up through the Arab Spring.
"Lewis has led a staggeringly productive life--publishing a jaw-dropping 32 books--and seems to have had more fun than any department worth of more somber professors. . . . We are fortunate to have this chatty memoir of reminiscences of scholarly discovery and stimulating encounters with everyone from Isaac Stern to Scoop Jackson to the shah of Iran." --"The Washington Post"
