New Title – Anywhere But Saudi Arabia!

Anywhere But Saudi Arabia! Experiences of a once reluctant expat
By Kathy Cuddihy

When Bechtel offered Sean Cuddihy a transfer to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1976, his wife Kathy agreed to go along on one condition: that it was only for two years, not a minute longer. This reluctant commitment turned into a 24-year love affair with Saudi Arabia and its people…

Kathy’s humorous anec­dotes of her adven­tures and misad­ven­tures trace the journey of a country in trans­ition. Never has a nation made so much progress in so short a time. As a trusted journ­alist and busi­ness­woman, Kathy witnessed, recorded and parti­cip­ated in this spec­tac­ular development. From palaces to prisons and mud houses to private jets, Kathy’s perspective is unique and her exper­i­ences remarkable.

Told with the wit and styl­ish­ness for which the author is well known, Anywhere But Saudi Arabia! is a treasure for all who know and love the Kingdom, and an eye-opener for those with no compre­hen­sion of what life was, and is, like for anun­con­ven­tional non-Muslim woman in a conser­vative Muslim population.

At times hilarious, at times shocking, but always honest and enter­taining, Kathy’s story is infused with deep affec­tion for her adopted country.
