A self-deprecating narrator, Kirchner lets us into her mind as she tried establishing a media presence (and talent pool) for Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar. She took the job to support her spouse, who wanted to be a foreign correspondent but never filed stories. When Geoff divorced her over the phone, I cried for her. What woman hasn't rearranged her life for a Geoff, only to have the whole thing blow up in her face? But Kirchner found the irony of desperately wanting breakup sex in a land where dating was illegal.
This memoir is a must-read for yoga lovers, adventure seekers, and anyone who has done the emotional work for a sweet partner who won't fight back.
The very personal thoughts and emotions of the author are bared for all to see. A contrast to the way she hid so much from her coworkers, friends, spouse as the story unfolds.
The author is able to brilliantly provide insight into and describe a country and culture foreign to so many. Her humor, a bit raunchy at times, will have you laughing out loud throughout the story, eagerly wanting more.
Looking forward to reading more from Lisa Kirchner!
Move over Sex in the City and Bridget Jones Diary -- Lady Creature in Qatar is great summer reading.
I can't wait for her to expand my horizons in her next book which I hear is coming out shortly.
