About the book:

Five contemporary Egyptian women, ranging in age from early twenties to mid-sixties, told their life stories to Nayra Atiya over a period of many months. Together, these self-portraits touch on many aspects of women's lives in Egypt now and in the recent past, from life as a co-wife in a polygamous marriage, through the place of witchcraft in daily life and the maintenance of the gold or silver khul-khaal anklets worn by married women which give the collection its title.
