The Red Wadi

By: Hamad S. Alomar

About the Book

The Red Wadi offers a glimpse into a community in Arabia during the 1950s and 1960s when people lived under a variety of self-imposed social restrictions. The novel, both informative and entertaining, follows individuals of that community as they try to secretly bypass these restrictions. Though they had been told these ideals and restrictions were right, their human nature told them something else. Their lives are woven together, but each character has a unique and layered journey. The Red Wadi offers insight on the complexities of Arabian culture and society in recent history.
