By the author of Women of Sand and Myrrh, this is a collection of 17 short stories about contemporary Arab women. In the stories—11 of which appear here in English translations for the first time—al-Shaykh expands her horizons beyond the boundaries of Lebanon, taking readers throughout the Middle East, to Africa, and finally to London. Stylistically diverse, her stories are often about the shifting and ambiguous power relationships between different cultures—as well as between men and women.
