A Woman of Five Seasons
By (author) Leila al-Atrash
Woman of Five Seasons by Leila al-Atrash
Book DescriptionThe poor, the dispossessed, the opportunist -- all flock to the newly oil-rich state of Barqais in search of wealth. A Woman of Five Seasons vividly explores the relations that develop in such countries between local high officials and incoming heartland Arabs. Alongside this a second, highly relevant theme is developed: the poignant coming of age of the Arab woman as she seeks, in the face of traditionally exploitative Arab male attitudes, to win a degree of independence and fulfillment.
