Abdul Rahman-Munif

. . . and his Cities of Salt trilogy is what Homo Edax is reading for pleasure these days in his (little) spare time. It's a grand three part novel about the impact of American oil companies on the Middle East running from the 1930s-1970s. Pulling no punches about the pathologies of both American and Arab cultures and written by one who knows the oil industry and its impact up-close-and-personal, it makes for a timely read.
