Dreams of Trespass: Tales of a Harem Girlhood

Fatima Mernissi (Author)


In "Dreams of Trespass," Fatima Mernissi weaves her own memories with the dreams and memories of the women who surrounded her in the courtyard of her youth - women who, deprived of access to the world outside, recreated it from sheer imagination. "Dreams of Trespass" is the provacative story of a girl confronting the mysteries of time and place, gender and sex in the recent Muslim world.
