About the book:

Five contemporary Egyptian women, in age from their early twenties to mid-sixties and all of the min- to lower socioeconomic classes, tell their life stories. From birth and childhood to puberty, clitoridectomy, marriage, adult life, and children, we are allowed a generous glimpse, through these very personal accounts, into the details of five women's daily lives. We become acquainted with their families, share their thoughts, dreams, fears, tragedies, and disappointments, as well as getting a good dollop of folklore, superstition, manners and customs, and general information.
