Based on Nawaal El-Saadawi’s meetings with a female prison inmate in Egypt, the protagonist Firdaus tells the reader her life story as she awaits execution for murder. Fierce and powerful, this is a tale of rebellion, manipulation, and patriarchy, discussing the oppression of women and FGM.

This is a classic feminist text by one of the Arab World’s foremost activists.

The reading group provides a free, friendly and gentle environment in which opinions are shared and new appreciations can be discovered. There is wine, curious minds and relaxed conversation. Come and join our warm bookish group – all are welcome.
