Quick Take: <em>Driving the Saudis</em> by Jayne Amelia Larson

After years of scraping by as an actress, Jayne Amelia Larson spent seven weeks chauffeuring a Saudi princess and her coterie. They arrived at LAX with millions in cash and spent it on clothes, gadgets, and plastic surgery. Larson turned the experience into a one-woman play, then into this funny, insightful memoir (Free Press, 224 pages, $25). In Driving the Saudis, her writing goes beyond judgment, conveying what it’s like to be a Muslim woman, whether royal or servant.
