Reviews
Bassiouney's bighearted fourth novel (the first to be translated into English) portrays the agonies of love and identity.--Publishers Weekly
The novel describes beautifully the love triangle between the conservative Wafaa, the liberal journalist, and Ashraf; in doing so Bassiouney brings to light typical conflicts within Egyptian society.--Egypt Independent
Bassiouney's startling conclusion is clever, humorous, and satisfying.--Women's Review of Books
