I'm in the middle of reading a lengthy feature by the outstanding British journalist Johann Hari: The Dark Side of Dubai.
I thought I knew how bad things were in Dubai, but I was wrong. I also thought the story was too long and I would skim it, but I'm riveted.
I highly recommend spending some time with this one: The dark side of Dubai.
Thanks to James for sending.
And may I add, regarding both A. L. Kennedy (in my previous post) and Johann Hari, that it really pisses me off that writers can be this good, this young.
