Review of From Dunes to Dior

From Dunes to Dior, a collection of essays by Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar, explores the author's transition from an American culture to that of Qatar. The author talks all about how different she is viewed by her own Indian heritage, her American upbringing and what she is seen as in Qatar, where many people who share her same looks are treated differently than the nationals.

The author covers everything from fashion to religion to different perceptions of everyone, including herself. It is certainly an eye-opening account of the Middle East and how people, though they may judge from the outside, are not as different when you look anywhere around the world.

Great review, Terri! I also loved reading From Dunes to Dior. Not only did I feel like I learned so much about a culture I knew very little about, I also felt like I got to intimately know the author. Thanks for joining us on this tour. Please kindly take a moment to cross-post your reviews to Amazon and GoodReads.
