Zahra comes from a conservativ

    PDFEPUB Hanan AlShaykh #211; #211; حكاية زهرة PDFEPUB #184; حكاية mobile, زهرة pdf, حكاية زهرة PDFWhile it's not difficult to admire and appreciate how radical this work's frank discussion of female infidelity marital discontent and general sexuality must have been in the context of the Middle East in the mid 1980s context alone does it make it any easier to connect to such a nonlinear and abstract work populated exclusively by flat unrelatable characters Purportedly the book is influenced by the author's own life While some great fiction comes from autobiographical elements here these elements seem to make the work far too insular to appeal to a general audienceCentral character and occasional narrator Zahra has clearly been mistreated by the people in her life She has been privy to her mother's adultery from too young an age abused and insulted by her domineering father and left with few options after some misguided dallianc
