Product Description (Almond: The Sexual Awakening of a Muslim Woman Book)
  • "The Almond: The Sexual Awakening of a Muslim Woman" by Nedjma (Author), C. Jane Hunter (Translator).
  • This autobiographical novel, which first appeared to great acclaim in France, charts the sexual exploits of Badra, a devout Muslim who escapes her arranged and loveless marriage to live with an aunt in Tangier during the 1960s.
  • France has withdrawn from Morocco, but the city Badra is inadvertently exposed to currents of the rising counterculture, including feminism.
  • Then she meets Driss, an older European-educated doctor who serves as her erotic mentor, awakening her true carnal self and her awareness of her enormous sexual power.
  • Reminiscent of Marguerite Duras's The Lover, the story is told by a wiser, older narrator recalling her reckless youth with envy. "Nedjma," the novel's pseudonymous Moroccan author, has a gift for turning a beautiful phrase obscene and vice versa sustaining the title's metaphor for genitalia for over 200 pages is no easy feat.
  • In some senses, her story appeals directly to Western fantasies liberating the Muslim woman from her veil and it is easy to see how such a book would gain approval from a French or American audience.
  • Yet the novel is so genuinely artful, so emotionally sincere, that the racy subject matter is eclipsed by its stunning prose.
  • Paperback.
  • 256 pages.
