'Yousef al-Mohaimeed is a rising star in international literature. His new book, Munira’s Bottle, is a rich and skillfully-crafted story of a dysfunctional Saudi Arabian family. One of its strengths lies in its edgy characters: Munira, a sultry, self-centered, sexually repressed woman; Ibn al-Dahhal, the bold imposter who deceives and betrays her; and Mohammud, her perpetually angry and righteous brother, a catalyst who forces the events. Western readers will welcome it for its opening door into Arab lives and minds.' (Annie Proulx 2009-01-01)
