Reviews

An amazingly rich and fascinating novel.--Roger Allen, translator of A Sleepless Eye
The translation is excellent: simple, accessible, and graceful.--Melanie Magidow, translator of Mortal Designs
This beautifully written novel is a milestone because an Arab woman writer dared to investigate, describe, and expose two slaveries: that of slaves and that of women.--Fadia Faqir, author of Willow Trees Don't Weep
