Reviews

"Wonderful and enchanting.... Mernissi brings this vanished world to life."--New York Times Book Review
"A remarkable book...vits good humor is unwavering; it tempers judgmentalism with understanding; and it provides a vivid portrait of a world that most Westerners can scarcely comprehend."--Washington Post Book World
"[Mernissi] creates a necklace of tales as delightful as Scheherazade's."--Elle
