Product description


"A deceptively simple book, written in a spare, poetic style. But it is a rich read... It is without doubt an important and courageous book" (Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns)

"This is a remarkable novel, written with a beautiful lucidity... it is a book which achieves what imaginative literature can provide better than any art form: it makes you think and feel at the same time" (Allan Massie Scotsman)

"An important and shocking polemic; it will outrage readers for the truths it reveals" (Eileen Battersby The Irish Times)

"We know so little about the day-to-day life of people in Afghanistan - and in particular its women - that glittering gems such as this ... become all the more valuable for shining a torch on a beleaguered and largely unseen existence" (Metro)

"Her monologue is a direct attempt on the part of Rahimi to rip away the veil over Afghan women's lives... An act of political courage and a beautifully constructed, deeply memorable novella" (Observer)

Book Description

This explosive, controversial and moving short novel - winner of France's prestigious Goncourt Prize - is a compelling look behind the veil that confronts taboos of female oppression and sexuality.
