Reviews

"A moving repudiation of those who have made Egypt's history in the last century."-- "Washington Post"
"El Saadawi's poetic prose and searing details keep the pages alive with stories of triumph, dissent, death, and disappointment."-- "San Francisco Chronicle"
"I think her life has been one long death threat. At a time when nobody else was talking, she spoke the unspeakable."--Margaret Atwood "San Francisco Chronicle"
