Sandstorms: Days and Nights in Arabia by Peter Theroux explodes myths and preconceptions about the region and replaces them with the even more intriguing reality of fanatic Muslims, overwhelmingly rich and powerful royal families, and the vast gulf in understanding between Arabs and westerners.

Peter Theroux was stationed as a journalist in Riyadh, for most of his seven years in the region.
