Read in February, 2012

"Fadi Azzan’s debut novel, Sarmada, focuses on the lives of three extraordinary women in the Syrian town of Sarmada. This story winds its way through myths, superstitions, illicit love, erotica and dissent. Originally written in Arabic and translated by Adam Talib, Sarmada is currently in the running for the International Prize for Arab Fiction.

"Author Azzan focuses on the lives of Azza / Hela Mansour, Farida and Buthayna. All three women stand out in their town for their brave dissent of tradition and laws."
