AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Australian writer Geraldine Brooks is best-known today for her Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction. But as a foreign correspondent Geraldine spent six years covering the Middle East. For her, headline events were also the backdrop to a less obvious but more enduring drama: the daily life of Muslim women, and Nine Parts of Desire is the story of her intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils. Fair-minded and often revelatory, Nine Parts of Desire is an extraordinarily rich tapestry of the different lives women lead under Islam, and a captivating and diverse portrait of a little known world. An international bestseller, this new edition of Nine Parts of Desire features an Australian Afterword."--Provided by publisher.
