By the Rivers of Babylon is a harrowing tale with a love story at its core, weaving a tale of flight intrigue, heroism, conflict and madness against the background of the maelstrom of the Middle East.

By Khalid Kishtainy Quartet Books, £15. Kishtainy’s novel is the first I have seen by an Iraqi Arab about the fate of the Iraqi Jews. It stands with the novels of such great Iraqi Jewish writers as Sami Michael and Eli Amir. Although at times weighed down by exposition, By the Rivers of Babylon offers a different and at times beautifully drawn perspective. It depicts the rise of antisemitism in Iraq and the agony of the Jews who go into exile.
