About the book:

"My name is Azra al Jamal, and I have just been killed" The stoning of a Jordanian woman, seen on television, spurs four related Capetonian Muslim women to fill her silence. In this one-woman play, At Her Feet they lift the veil on what binds and divides them, revealing the details of their textured lives. At Her Feet's poetic language, energetic hurnour and authentic voice encourage the reader to confront the concerns of Islamic women in a way that defies stereotype. 'Paradise lies at the feet of the mother' the Prophet said. At Her Feet closes with Azra al Jamal's mother cradling her dead daughter: 'You are in the arms of The Most Merciful, and at the feet of the Infinitely Compassionate.' The hadith that echoes through the play strikes its clear note, At Her Feet is delicate and candid, respectful and hilarious, considered and spirited; it is as complex as the six women who live in it. Nadia Davids was born in 1977 in Cape Town. At Her Feet is her fourth play. Includes an interview with Nadia Davids by Leila Davids
