Brilliant is a collection of short stories set in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, a polyglot city where cultures collide and converge, where money -- and sometimes justice -- is no object, where in less than two generations towers have replaced tents. In these stories, a cast of characters -- an Egyptian pastry chef, a Filipina nanny, a Canadian nurse, a lusty French urban planner, a newly destitute British couple, and a cross-dressing Emirati -- navigate this land of sudden plenty, discovering the limits of freedom, money, tolerance and their own good sense.

About the Author:

Denise Roig moved to Montreal from Los Angeles in 1989 when her twelve-year-old daughter, Ariel, convinced her they should run away so Ariel could join the circus. Her daughter went to study with Montreal's Cirque du Soleil and Denise spent the next twenty years as a Montrealer. Roig wrote professionally for twenty years before publishing her first short-story collection. She also taught magazine writing and editing at Concordia University and story-writing for more than a decade in Quebec high schools. She has published three collections of critically acclaimed short stories -- A Quiet Night and a Perfect End, Any Day Now, and Brilliant -- as well as the delectable non-fiction memoir Butter Cream: A Year in a Montreal Pastry School. After three years freelance writing for The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi, Roig now makes her home in Hamilton, Ontario.

Book Description Signature Editions, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Brilliant is a collection of short stories set in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, a polyglot city where cultures collide and converge, where money ? and sometimes justice ? is no object, where in less than two generations towers have replaced tents. In these stories, a cast of characters ? an Egyptian pastry chef, a Filipina nanny, a Canadian nurse, a lusty French urban planner, a newly destitute British couple, and a cross-dressing Emirati ? navigate this land of sudden plenty, discovering the limits of freedom, money, tolerance and their own good sense. Denise Roig s extraordinary and subtly linked sweep of stories is riveting. She creates a Middle East ? full of heat, traffic, laughter, absurdity, tragedy, poignancy and food ? with insight into human nature and a deft touch with characters. It s a thoroughly nourishing read. ? Anastasia Hobbet, author of Small Kingdoms. Seller Inventory # AAS9781927426425
