If you haven't read Ferraris's novels, beginning with Finding Nouf, you are in for a treat. Start with the first book to get acquainted with lab tech Katya Hijazi who works in the female section of the Jeddah coroner's office. Ferraris lived for a while in Saudi Arabia, and her novels give us a complex, close up view of a culture that remains largely hidden from view (yes, some of it under burqas!) except for news about wealth, oil and the politics of the Middle East. John Kenyon at Grift Magazine invited me to review the third novel, Kingdom of Strangers. Check it out if you are interested!
