Sandra Barman (sandrabarman) | 3 comments Woman at point zero, by Nawal El Saadawi.
It's a strong book about women's conditions in Egypt by Nawal El Saadawi, an egyptian writer who's been emprisoned and forced to flee Egypt because of her work for women's rights.

I also liked The Harafish by Naguib Mahfouz a lot.

Nina ( picturetalk321 ) | 2 comments Basma Abdel Aziz, The Queue. Really likes this one: dystopian state, reminds me of Victor Pelevin and Ismail Kadare, written by a woman activist. Strange and compelling.
