About this book
The poor, the dispossessed, the opportunist- all flock to the newly oil-rich state of Barqais in search of wealth.
A Woman of Five Seasons vividly explores the relations that develop in such countries between local high officials and incoming heartland Arabs. Alongside this a second, highly relevant theme is developed: the poignant coming of age of the Arab woman as she seeks, in the face of traditionally exploitative Arab male attitudes, to win a degree of independence and fulfillment.Brand: Leila al-Atrash
