Joumana Haddad angrily challenges prevalent notions of identity and womanhood in the Middle East in this intrepid exploration. While she finds the West's dominant portrayal of Arab women appalling, she also finds the image projected by many Middle Eastern women to be infuriating as well. She discusses her intellectual development and the liberating effect of literature on her life, and in the process she transcends religious and cultural perspectives. Ultimately she argues that every woman has not only the right but the duty to ignore social, political, and sexual expectations and be true to herself. Fiery and candid, this is a provocative exploration of what it means to be an Arab woman today that will enlighten and inform a new international feminism.

Joumana Haddad was born in 1970 in Beirut, Lebanon, where she lives and works. A poet, journalist, and translator, she is Editor-in-Chief of the cultural pages of the Lebanese daily An-Nadar, and has published four collections of poetry which have been translated into French, German, Spanish, and Italian. She is fluent in seven languages.
