A Daughter of Isis — The Autobiography of Nawal El Saadawi - Nawal El Saadawi

Zed, 2002, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. 3rd Impression. [First Edition: 1999] From the cover: “Nawal El Saadawi has been pilloried, censored, imprisoned and exiled for her refusal to accept the oppressions imposed on women by gender and class. For her, writing and action have been inseparable and this is reflected in some of the most evocative and disturbing novels ever written about Arab women. Daughter Of Isis is the autobiography of this extraordinary woman. In it she paints a sensuously textured portrait of the childhood that produced the freedom fighter. We see how she molded her own creative power into a weapon — how, from an early age, the use of words became an act of rebellion against injustice.”
