Overview
DYING IN DUBAI is a memoir of love, loss, reckoning, and renewal, set against the backdrop of a Rodeo Drive-on-Mars desert city. It tells of the sudden death of Roselee Blooston's beloved husband, Jerry, and how her fifteen day journey through a profoundly disorienting environment, and the inner journey over the next thirteen months through the equally foreign terrain of grief, force her to face wrenching questions about his behavior there. As she free-falls through the city's frightening underbelly with its ubiquitous police stations, gender-segregated waiting rooms, arbitrary Sharia laws, and an opaque bureaucracy that prevents her from immediately bringing his body home, the Middle East becomes the catalyst for a life-altering confrontation with her partner, her marriage, and ultimately, with herself. DYING IN DUBAI shows the reader that no matter the uncertainties, it is possible to transcend heartbreak, and to move forward with joy.
