One Man's Remarkable Quest to Save Mosul's Zoo

Louise Callaghan


The Bookseller of Kabul meets The Zookeeper’s Wife: an award-winning journalist puts a human face on life under ISIS, told through the prism of the Mosul zoo.

“This is an unexpectedly funny and moving book…. Through the story of a man who loves both lions and life, Louise Callaghan shows how humor and defiance can counter cruelty, and why both humans and animals crave freedom.” —Lindsey Hilsum, international editor for Britain’s Channel 4 News and author of In Extremis: The Life and Death of the War Correspondent Marie Colvin

Never before revealed, the in-depth true story behind the amazing rescue seen on PBS and in The New York Times, People, The New Yorker, Time, and more.
