Open Door by Latifa al-Zayyat
Book Description"The Open Door" explores a middle-class Egyptian girl's coming of sexual and political age, in the context of the Egyptian nationalist movement. Young Layla and her brother become involved in the student activism of the 1940s and early 1950s and in the popular resistance to continued imperialist rule. The novel traces the pressures on young women and young men of that time and class as they seek to free themselves of family control and social expectations.

Author Biography - Latifa al-Zayyat
Latifa Al-Zayyat (1923-96) struggles all her life to uphold just causes - national integrity, the welfare of the poor, human rights, freedom of expression, and the rejection of all forms of imperialist hegemony. As a professor of English Literature at Ain Shans University, her critical output was no less prolific than her creative writing, but the creative, academic, and political strands of her personality were interwoven. The Open Door is generally recognised as her magnum opus. Marilyn Booth received her D.Phil. in Arabic literature and modern Middle East history from St.Antony's College, Oxford. She has translated numerous works of Arabic fiction, most recently The Tiller of Waters by Hoda Barakat.
