|Plot Summary of The Pirate|
|"Baydr Al Fay was raised to be a Westernized business man so that he could handle the oil riches of the Prince of his unnamed country. He is promised that his son will be named heir of the Prince, who has no sons of his own. Baydr's first wife, an Arab woman, bears him only daughters. He divorces her and marries, Jordanna, a young Californian, who becomes a Moslem and bears him two sons. Terrorists plot to use Baydr's family as hostages to get him to help them conduct their business. They get one of his daughters to help them. In the end he has to get the Israelis to help save his family.
Robbins interlaces the plot with explicit descriptions of Baydr's sexual activities with Jordanna and others, Jordanna's with other men, as well as the heterosexual and homosexual relations of almost all of the minor characters."
Jack Goodstein, Resident Scholar
