Description del libro en espanol: ¿Que esconden las mujeres bajo el velo?

Una tarde cualquiera, mientras los hombres hacen la siesta, las mujeres se reúnen en el salón y hacen un te. Mientras beben, airean su corazon. Poco a poco, cada una de ellas explica una experiencia vital que les ha marcado para siempre: matrimonios concertados, infidelidades que les han cambiado el futuro&y lo mas importante de todo, tener que mantener la virginidad hasta el matrimonio, una cosa que, en los tiempos modernos, a veces no es siempre posible.

Bordados es un duro retrato sobre la situacion de la mujer en Oriente Medio y sobre la mejor manera de sobrevivir.

Book Description in English: What do women hide beneath the veil?

While the men rest in the afternoon, the women assemble in the living room for tea. While they drink, they vent and gossip, share intimate secrets, laughter and tears. Little by little, each confesses pivotal life experiences that have left an indelible impression on their hearts and minds: arranged marriages, acts of infidelity that altered their future lives, and most importantly, the cultural imperative to remain a virgin until marriage, a requirement that, in modern times, is not always possible or desirable. Based on her grandmothers stories, Satrapis Bordados is a sharp assault on stereotypes about Middle Eastern women and on the culture that oppresses them, as well as a hilarious and heart-wrenching testament to these womens day-to-day survival.
