The haunting story of a woman’s troubled journey from South Lebanon, to West Africa, to Beirut in search of sanctuary from violence is “sure to change any simple preconceptions about the Muslim women of today.” (San Francisco Chronicle). Translated by Peter Ford.

The Story of Zahra is a classic by any standards.”—Village Voice Literary Supplement

“This rich tale mesmerizes with its frank sexuality and scenes of war-torn Beirut.”—Publishers Weekly
