Read full description of the books Florence of Arabia:Using the same snarky political farce plot and character structures that he has with his other novels (Thank You For Smoking, No Way to Treat a First Lady) Christopher Buckley tackles feminism and the Middle East. Where his other novels get off to a fast start and speed through until the end, this one takes a bit more to get moving. Once it does get moving, it's entertaining but not quite as cleaver as his other efforts.
Buckley should be praised for tackling such an unfunny set of subjects with his style of humor and managing not to offend. This might probably be the most upbeat political comedy about the Middle East you ever read.
