Through exposé of life events touching eras past and present--weddings, daily duties, home-building, family excursion--the author produces the texture of a country so different that it hangs in the mist of fairy tales.

Julia Simpson-Urrutia has used various pseudonyms, both Western and Arabic- her stories and essays aired over the BBC world service, the Saudi Broadcasting System (English Service) and the U.S. armed forces radio airwaves. Original cover art by Omar Raymond Talal Eshmawi.
