liked it

a deeply exploitative and problematic book that breaks about all of the contemporary human subject research guidelines...but tells an amazing story, a personal experience of 1950's Iraq. A major flashpoint between 2nd wave and multicultural feminisms, I wonder if this book is due for a reappraisal now that third-wavers are getting tenure and the confessional style of writing is being re-examined. expect many hurt feelings and fascinating discussions if it is.
