Format: Paperback
Expatriate is a 340-page novel by Bud Rudesill in which he draws upon his own experiences as a geology technician, instructor, and research assistant in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia (as well as his wife's experiences in Khamis Mushayt and Riyadh as a nurse) to tell the fictional story of Cullen Mackenzie, the son of a geologist who grew up in Saudi Arabia during the 1950s and eventually returned to the U.S. Eighteen years later he has come back to Saudi Arabia with a marriage that is troubled and troubling. That's when he falls in love with Trista Madison, an Aramco nurse who is as enthusiastic as Bud in wanting to explore this austere, beautiful country with its complex and sometimes contradictory culture. Set in a time just before Saudi Arabia's Bedouin culture would become enmeshed in becoming part of an oil rich nation playing center stage in the world's seemingly insatiable demand for petroleum, Expatriate is a deftly woven novel of memorable personalities, an inherently fascinating culture, and the dynamic tensions between countries that is mirrored in an equally dynamic tension between the protagonist and two women from two different and differing cultures. A full time artist in mediums ranging from watercolors, oils, ceramic sculpture and weaving, to bronze casting, jewelry, and lampworking in glass, Bud Rudesill's debut novel documents an equally artistic flair for the written word.
