520    If youve ever studied a foreign language, you know what 
       happens when you first truly and clearly communicate with 
       another person. As Zora ONeill recalls, you feel like a 
       magician. If that foreign language is Arabic, you just 
       might feel like a wizard. They say that Arabic takes seven
       years to learn and a lifetime to master. ONeill had put in
       her time. Steeped in grammar tomes and outdated textbooks,
       she faced an increasing certainty that she was not only 
       failing to master Arabic, but also driving herself crazy. 
       She took a decade-long hiatus, but couldnt shake her 
       fascination with the language or the cultures it had 
       opened up to her. So she decided to jump back inthis time 
       with a new approach. Join ONeill for a grand tour through 
       the Middle East. You will laugh with her in Egypt, delight
       in the stories she passes on from the United Arab Emirates,
       and find yourself transformed by her experiences in 
       Lebanon and Morocco. Shes packed her dictionaries, her 
       unsinkable sense of humor, and her talent for making fast 
       friends of strangers. From quiet, bougainvillea-lined 
       streets to the lively buzz of crowded medinas, from 
       families homes to local hotspots, she brings a part of the
       world that is thousands of miles away right to your door. 
       A natural storyteller with an eye for the deeply absurd 
       and the deeply human, ONeill explores the indelible links 
       between culture and communication. A powerful testament to
       the dynamism of language, All Strangers Are Kin reminds us
       that learning another tongue leaves you rich with so much 
       more than words.
