Scheherazade Goes West PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Scheherazade Goes West free pdf Fatema Mernissi, the world-renowned Islamic feminist, has shed unprecedented light on the lives of women in the Middle East, in works hailed as "enchanting" "(The New York Times Book Review)," "exuberant" "(Elle)," and "remarkable" "(The Washington Post Book World)." Now, in "Scheherazade Goes West," Mernissi reveals her unique experiences as a liberated, independent Moroccan woman faced with the peculiarities and unexpected encroachments of Western culture. Her often surprising discoveries about the conditions of and attitudes toward women around the world -- and the exquisitely embroidered amalgam of clear-eyed autobiography and dazzling meta-fiction by which she relates those assorted discoveries -- add up to a deliciously wry, engagingly cosmopolitan, and deeply penetrating narrative.
