Reviews

"Larson reveals herself to be an articulate and observant writer. She balances colorful tales of excess with musings on women's roles, and accounts of bad behavior with consideration of the reasons behind it... There's plenty of fascinating insider info, too, about the job, her charges (Saudi and otherwise), and Los Angeles." * Publishers Weekly *
No one, including the author herself, escapes Larson's witty scrutiny. Sharp-eyed and humane." * Kirkus *
"[This] book has a Lives of the Rich and Famous feel about it, but it's not all about the money and the people who spent it (sometimes in utterly staggering quantities). In addition to the money, there's some sentiment here, too, as the author comes to know these people, who seem to come from another world, and learns they aren't so different, after all." * Booklist *
"Driving the Saudis is an entertaining, fast-paced read. As someone who has traveled with the Saudi royal family, I can confirm that Jayne Larson provides an amazingly accurate account. So if you want to take a ride with royalty without leaving the comfort of home, read this book." -- Jean Sasson * New York Times bestselling author Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia *
"Jayne Amelia Larson spent seven weeks with the .001% and returned with an astonishingly rich story to tell. Honest, compassionate, and deeply entertaining, Driving the Saudis is the story of a woman trying to support her dreams, make a few bucks, and keep a gaggle of pampered princesses happy without losing her mind (or her perspective) in the process." -- Suzanne Morrison * author of Yoga Bitch *
"Unlike most snappy memoirs about working as a temporary chauffeur for some of the richest people in the world, Driving the Saudis not only contains hilarious detail and horrifying excesses, but also serious social insight and moments of pure heartbreak. In her compulsively readable story, Larson has created memorable portraits of two cultures: theirs and ours." -Jim Krusoe, Parsifal
"A stolen glimpse into the world's most important and intriguing family. A wonderful book, wonderfully written." -- Robert Baer * author of New York Times bestselling Sleeping with the Devil and The Company We Keep *
