Michael Schindhelm | DUBAI HIGH – A CULTURE TRIP

Dubai High – A Culture Trip

Dubai High is that very rare thing: an honest account of a Failure. An unsparing memoir of 12 months spent constructing Dubai’s cultural authority in a climate that mixed idealism with opportunism – it intimately describes the complexities of working in globalization’s epicenter – Dubai. It offers a dry but tender view of Dubai’s bewildered Emiratis, as they construct, or have constructed for them, a unique 21st century urban prototype – a record both of how the writer tried to change Dubai and of how Dubai changed the writer.
