"Named after a fashionable district overlooking the Gulf, filled with elegant shopping malls, an American university, and an ever-increasing number of hotels and tall residential buildings, this collection, in many ways, captures the spirit of life in modern Kuwait. Here one finds vignettes about the Kuwaiti nationals and the expatriates who come to Kuwait for work, including professionals, service industry personnel, and laborers. Loomis describes their diverse experiences with insight and humor. Many of these stories touch the heart. A vivid and fascinating panorama."—Raymond Farrin, author of Abundance from the Desert: Classical Arabic Poetry

"Loomis’s stories see the world from the perspective of the characters he depicts, foreigners and Kuwaitis alike . . . readers will enjoy and be provoked by The Salmiya Collection."—Earl (Tim) Sullivan, professor and provost emeritus, American University in Cairo
