This just in: Jean Sasson, NYT bestselling author of PRINCESS, is releasing the first volume of her memoirs as an e-original with Barnes and Noble next week! As a nerd who took as many Middle Eastern history classes as possible in college, I cannot wait to read about Jean Sasson's adventures as a blonde Southern belle in Saudi Arabia. I can't even fathom how much courage that took. I haven't really traveled much, so it amazes me how a young woman could just pick up and leave everything she knows behind, all to work in the Middle East for 12 years. AMAZING! So keep an eye out for AMERICAN CHICK IN SAUDI ARABIA. It promises to be a fun, smart, eye-opening read.
