When the Saudi royal family vacationed in Los Angeles, they hired Jayne Amelia Larson, an actress struggling to make ends meet, to be their personal chauffeur. She’d heard stories of the Saudis’ outrageously generous gratuities and figured that several weeks at their beck and call might be worth her time. Her book, Driving the Saudis is a story about the corruption that nearly infinite wealth causes, and about what we all do for money. Told with compassionate insights and humor, it provides both entertainment and sharp social commentary on one of the world’s most secretive families.
