This author had me gut-laughing from page 2 of the prologue & it never really let up, even through all the horrors of war & the tragicomedy of despotism, among the many other troubles & triumphs great & small that this guy encounters. A skillful journalistic voice & an excellent window on Middle Eastern culture, directly quoted, & while the roster of current events has probably changed plenty in the last 20 years, the hopes & despairs & ironies in play seem timelessly recorded here, with a lot of empathy & insight along the way. Very much recommended! CR
