Reviews

"Employing an elegant and graceful line of argument-that if the act of sex is legitimate than all words used to describe the act can be no less so-this compelling novel renders homage to both love and language."
-"L'intelligent"
"A wholesome, beautiful, generous book of incredible erudition."
-Yasmina Khadra, author of "The Attack"
"An unprecedented success throughout the Arab world."
-"Le Nouvel Observateur"
"Salwa Al Neimi [is] the most audacious among contemporary Arab novelists."
- "Al Jazeera"
"Al Neimi announces the end of a taboo in the Arab world: that of sex!"
- "Reuters"
