  • Description or summary of the book: 'A very funny and frequently insightful look at the world's most combustible region.'-The New York Times Book ReviewNATIONAL BESTSELLER With razor-sharp wit and insight, intrepid journalist Tony Horwitz gets beyond solemn newspaper headlines and romantic myths of Arabia to offer startling close-ups of a volatile region few Westerners understand. His quest for hot stories takes him from the tribal wilds of Yemen to the shell-pocked shores of Lebanon; from the malarial sands of the Sudan to the eerie souks of Saddam Hussein's Iraq, a land so secretive that even street maps and weather reports are banned. As an oasis in the Empty Quarter, a veiled woman offers tea and a mysterious declaration of love. In Cairo, 'politeness police' patrol seedy nightclubs to ensure that belly dancers don't show any belly. And at the Ayatollah's funeral in Tehran a mourner chants, 'Death to America,' then confesses to the author his secret dream-to visit Disneyland. Careening through thirteen Muslim countries and Israel, Horwitz travels light, packing a keen eye, a wicked sense of humor, and chutzpah in almost suicidal measure. This wild and comic tale of Middle East misadventure reveals a fascinating world in which the ancient and the modern collide. 'As a document of the cultural impasse that brought on the war, this is unsurpassed.'-Village Voice 'High-spirited and entertaining.'-The New Yorker 'A timely and incisive insider's description of the mysterious Arab World . . . Tony Horwitz is an ideal guide for American Reader.'-Chicago Tribune
