Al-Massri, Maram/ Mattawa, Khaled

Product Detail:

“Maram al-Massri comes as a shock. She writes about all the taboo subjects—physical passion, faithlessness, adultery, loneliness, despair—with candor and intensity that would mark her out even to Westerners.”—The Times (London)

“Her direct, unadorned writing, with its emphasis on the quotidian, and utilization of simple, almost child-like metaphors, contrast sharply with the conventions of traditional Arabic love poetry.”—Banipal: Magazine of Modern Arab Literature
