Product Details


“Vivid, at times unbearable testimonies . . . In an act of rare humility and generosity, Slimani offers [these women] what they’ve been deprived of: a space to tell their stories, to exist.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Potent . . . An ensemble portrait of women drawn together through the force of pressures they all face . . . Slimani keeps a light presence in the interviews, not unlike Svetlana Alexievich’s conversations with former Soviet women soldiers.” —John Freeman, Lit Hub

“Challenge[s] one of the Arab world’s great taboos . . . [and] provides a rare, and perhaps unique, look into a patriarchal Arab society laden with hypocrisy.” The Times (London)

“Fascinating and surprising.” Elle (France)

“A nuanced and pragmatic reflection on the situation of women in Morocco and in the Arab-Muslim world.” L’Express
