In volatile Jordan, a diplomat's wife -- an extravagantly temperamental Chicana with a taste for alcohol -- is attracted to a Moslem bureaucrat who is close to the King. Their affair is really an exploration of the harsh contradictions of marriage, friendship, and personal identity in a violent age. The author conveys these feelings with affecting lucidity and colorful authenticity. -- Library Journal
