This could be the most controversial novel to emerge in our times, not just from Saudi Arabia, but from the whole of the Arab world. Al HayatSo much sex. . . . But don't expect a winking Melissa P. of the desert. Here we're talking about stifling gynaecea and cracks of madness reminiscent of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath; cynical, upper class girls like in Mary McCarthy's The Group ; and rich, alienating tendencies like in the first Bret Easton Ellis.Marco Cicala, Il Venerdi di RepubblicaA best-selling book when it appeared in Arabic, The Others is a literary tour de force, offering a window into one of the most repressive societies in the world.Siba al-Harez tells the story of a nameless teenager at a girls school in the heavily Shiite Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Like her classmates, she has no contact with men outside her family. When the glamorous Dai tries to seduce her, her feelings of guilt are overcome by an overwhelming desire for sexual and emotional intimacy. Dai introduces her to a secret world of lesbian parties, online flirtations, and hotel liaisonsa world in which the thrill of infatuation and the shame of obsession are deeply intertwined. Al-Harez's erotic, dereamlike story of looming personal crisis is a remarkable portrait of hidden lives.Siba al-Harez is the pseudonym of a twenty-six-year-old Saudi woman from al-Qatif in Saudi Arabia. This is her first novel.
