I picked this up after reading his latest book, The Circle. This is very different, but I was hooked from the first page.
In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter’s college tuition, and finally do something great. Alan feels jet-lagged, old and out of place.
This is a short, poignant tale, full of characters, dialogue and situations that made me smile, and I hope will have the same effect on other readers!
