Kabul Beauty School
Another woman. Steps into another culture. And marries a man. With whom she can hardly communicate. She's from Michigan. An English speaker. He's Afghani. And like in The White Masai, she wants him to behave like men in our culture. To nurture. To cuddle. To be there for her. For me. This substory is the hook. Not the beauty school. I know there's a movie too. I haven't seen it. And don't know if I will.
Add: QT reminded me too that she is his second wife. He has a first wife and a handful of children living in Saudi Arabia.
