CHICAGO _ It's not clear if Rajaa Alsanea's first novel, "Girls of Riyadh," was banned in Saudi Arabia because it became a Middle East best seller or if it became a best seller because it was banned. Either way, it was a surprise for Alsanea, a soft-spoken 26-year-old Saudi who is studying dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She wrote the book, which follows the lives of four upper-class young Saudi women who struggle to find love in a restrictive society, in her spare...

The U.S. and many other Western nations have put increasing...
