"Yousef al-Mohaimeed is a rising star in international literature. 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 Muhammad, 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
"Mohaimeed writes in a lush style that evokes a writer he cites as an influence, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He takes on some of the most divisive subjects in the Arab world."--Washington Post
