Description


Arab women have been the subject of male fantasies and myths about the East for centuries, while for many within the Arab world today, women who confess to sexual pleasure are still taboo. But Arabic literature has a long tradition of erotic writing. This ground-breaking collection celebrates those women's voices who dare to articulate their own desires with artistry and skill.
