Check out JJ! We met last night at Sofitel The Palm, at an exclusive cocktail event at the lovely Maui Beach Bar. She's the main character, the now infamous Jumeirah Jane, in a comic guide-book entirely dedicated to her: My Fantastic Life in Dubai.
Writer Kyra Dupont Troubetzkoy and illustrator Céline Mallard, with simple drawings and funny comments, they underline the funny side of the privileged and often spoiled lives of the married expats. Ok, lets face it we can all relate and its good fun!
Kyra Dupont Troubetzkoy, author of the novel, said: “This is truly an important moment in JJ’s life; she is finally brought to life and we hope you will like her sense of humor. She is unique and we believe she is the best spokesperson for our lifestyle here in Dubai, containing scenes that only happen in Dubai or as we so fondly call it ‘so Dubai’”.
Following around the book’s heroine JJ and detailing her every day life, the novel is a great souvenir of expat life and makes a perfect present for visitors.
