Other Place by Ibrahim Abdel Meguid
Book DescriptionThis prize-winning novel portrays the shallowness of the petrodollar culture and the price one pays for quick money. The protagonist, an educated middle-class Egyptian from Alexandria, describes his experiences and those of migrant workers and professionals in one of the Gulf states, and their interaction with the oil-rich country's local elite and with agents of western businesses.
