Kabul Beauty School (Nov. '07)

Kabul Beauty School, by Deborah Rodriguez (audio) - This was a great follow up to "Reading Lolita in Tehran". It was interesting to hear the perspective of an "average" American living in Afghanistan ... and not in the NGO compounds. Her decision to agree to an arranged marriage was strangely romantic to me, despite the troubles she had over the years with her new husband. I recommended this to Mom and am looking for an audio version to lend her (this one was downloaded from the library).

Here's a link to another review of this book from My Random Acts of Reading blog.

This sounds interesting... I will have to look for it.

Thanks for the review.
