cities of salt - munif“This is one I think you need on your site. It’s about the discovery of oil in Saudi Arabia in the 1930s, the consequences for the country, for the region, and America’s role in it all. Munif is very critical… Did you see that Adam Curtis documentary, Bitter Lake? Similar to that. A bit like Naguib Mahfouz does sometimes, he brings in some magical-mystical elements, too. It’s a classic.”

Set in an unnamed country on the Arabian Peninsula.
