|"[A] stunningly candid portrait of culture and politics in the Middle East." Los Angeles Times Book Review|
From the Publisher:
A journalist who has been stationed in the Middle East for seven years recounts the customs, religion, and food of the Arab culture and recalls the odd assortment of characters he encountered.In this provocative and incisive memoir, Peter Theroux reveals the Middle East only as a true insider can. Stationed as a journalist in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for most of his seven years in the region, Theroux explodes the romantic images of Arabia, but replaces them with the even more intriguing reality of fanatic Muslims, overwhelmingly rich and powerful royal families, and the vast gulf in understanding between Arabs and westerners.
