Talking Location With author Felix Francis – ST MORITZ
The Gulf Between Us
Location(s): United Arab Emirates (UAE)
For most people, being a single mother to three boys (two of them teenagers), sorting out your feelings for an ex-boyfriend who’s now an international film star, pacifying an elderly father who keeps asking why you’re not married, tolerating your bigoted brother, while keeping out of the way of a dismissive film producer who seems to have made a mission out of annoying you, would be quite enough of a challenge.
Annie Lester is not only trying to tackle all this – she’s also doing it in the small Gulf emirate of Hawar where, in the summer of 2002, the impact of America’s decision to invade Iraq is just beginning to be felt.
