about this book

Geraldine Brooks offers an intimate, often shocking portrait of the lives of modern Muslm women, and shows how male pride and despotic power have warped the original message of a once liberating faith. A captivating work of firsthand reportage, Nine Parts of Desire is also an acute analysis of the world's fastest-growing religion, deftly illustrating how Islam's holiest texts have been misused to justify repression of women.
