Praise
"[This] is a transporting novel that brings together the distinct worlds of Texas and Saudi Arabia through the turbulent times of one family's experience. By the novel's end, each character attempts to regain footing within the new understanding and configuration of the family. And for the reader, it becomes a world that is familiar and foreign all at once."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Saudi-born author Keija Parssinen’s stunning debut offers the intricate, emotionally resonant story of an American expatriate who discovers that her husband, a Saudi billionaire, has taken a second bride—an emotionally turbulent revelation that blinds them both to their teenaged son’s ominous first steps down the road of radicalization. Readers of The Septembers of Shiraz will be captivated by Parssinen’s story of love and betrayal, fundamentalism, family and country in the Middle East. Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead, hails Parssinen’s characters as “richly conceived, and her evocative petrol universe of wealth, privilege, and intrigue is unforgettable,” characterizing The Ruins of Us as having “powerful storytelling that is refreshing and entertaining.”
