In the Kingdom of Men, by Kim Barnes
One of the Northwest’s most prominent authors, Kim Barnes, is out with a new novel about power, poverty, oil and oppression. It’s called In the Kingdom of Men. Northwest Public Radio's John Paxson has a first look.
Kim Barnes’ new work is a tale of life--and death--in the closed, often claustrophobic compounds of Americans working in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. It is also a portrait of a soul in transition.
