Learning about other cultures

I am reading this New Yorker article about Arab novels and I realize I have never read one. I think reading a novel is actually a great way to learn about life in another culture. I really enjoyed Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. Why not learn about the Arab world?

So I put this book, Girls of Riyadh on my Amazon.com wish list. Maybe I will check it out from the library and learn about girls in Saudi Arabia!
