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.

I have always loved short stories and enjoyed this collection too. It brought back memories of my times abroad as an 'ex-pat' in hot climates, epecially my short stint when I was working in Adu Dhabi - of which I have fond memories! Thank you Denise!
