LIFE WITH THE GIGA RICH: A QATAR MEMOIR by Kathleen Ferguson-Huntington puts a positive spin on living in the Arab World, as she chronicles her twelve years teaching art to university freshmen in Qatar.
A twenty-first century storyteller, Ferguson-Huntington weaves a wild, entertaining, and illuminating yarn from her daily life among Middle Eastern royals, where the author came to love the young people who are demonized by Western media. Says Ferguson-Huntington: “My students taught me more than I taught them. It was a totally undreamed-of and transformative experience.”
With stories ranging from creating an art car, to dressing up like rabbits, to Arab road rage and ferocious flowers, LIFE WITH THE GIGA RICH reads like a cross between The King and I and Eat Pray Love. It will make you laugh and cry, and see the Middle East with fresh eyes.
