Tragic poignant boring interminable The premise of this literary historical novel was interesting to me but I couldn t seem to get a toehold in the endless telling of it In 1930s Saudi Arabia the name of the country goes unmentioned the Americans arrive in order to dig for oil The small settlement of Wadi al Uyoun is turned upside down its oasis trees and houses destroyed its residents forced out We are introduced to Miteb and his wife and children who will disappear as other characters are introduced in episodic fashion Miteb is driven fairly insane by the destruction of his village and rides away into the desert on his camel Several of his sons think they see him at various times as do characters later in the novel but Miteb is a mirage a ghost who becomes part of the local folklore An old woman whose son has left with a caravan several years earlier and helplessly waits for his return now having lost her home dies of grief The Arabs and bedouins who go to work constructing the new housing for themselves and the Americans and the oil pipeline are portrayed as essentially Stone Age Their only contact with the outside world is via caravans coming from places like Egypt Damascus Basra and Aleppo So when they find the Americans reading books they are alarmed and puzzled by the books They can t figure out why the books come in all sizes and colors and why some men carry several others just one or two Why do they change out one book for another Why do the Arabs see one book many times but another book just once Some suspect that the Americans are reading the books in order to gain control of the local people When they ask what is in the books they never get the same answer twice What do the books have to do with the oil Why are some of the books history and others geography Do the books have to do with witchcraft or just blasphemy Many of them have never seen the ocean and are terrified of it When boats and oil tankers are seen just offshore they are frightened The boats tankers and bulldozers are perhaps operated by jinns The local emir is given a radio causing everyone to just about lose their shit and wonder how the tiny man inside making the noise can survive As the emir watches one of the ships through his telescope and informs others that he can see naked women cavorting on it the men s lewd thoughts erupted and flew over this long distance to reach the ship and touch the women s bodies clothed like a ball of fire Their hearts and eyes were shocked and they felt an uncontrollable panic What the emir was saying could not be believed a man could not imagine such a thing real naked women wandering among men on the deck of a ship How could the men stand to have them walking around and coming near without burning up without exploding like gunpowder without sticking themselves like tent pegs into every crevice of those warm beautiful bodiesWhile numerous Arabs are given personalities and stories which often end in tragedy the Americans remain cardboard cut outs never really fleshed out Only two or three of them have names They are devils and infidels the women sluts The Americans are fascinated by the Arabs and take photographs of them constantly These people are strange they seem so mysterious says one You never know whether they re sad or happy Everything about them is wrapped up layers upon layers just like the desert under their feet
