The Almond by Nedjma ,. Jane Hunter Translator. An autobiographical erotic novel written by an observant Muslim woman in contemporary North Africa, The Almond is an extraordinary and pioneering literary work, a truly unforgettable journey into the sexual undercurrents of a world that is, outwardly and to Western eyes, puritanical. Badra is a young Muslim widow who flees the small town of Imchouk to take refuge with her U An autobiographical erotic novel written by an observant Muslim woman in contemporary North Africa, The Almond is an extraordinary and pioneering literary work, a truly unforgettable journey into the sexual undercurrents of a world that is, outwardly and to Western eyes, puritanical.
Badra is a young Muslim widow who flees the small town of Imchouk to take refuge with her Uncle Slimane's iconoclastic ex-wife. In Imchouk, it was expected that Badra's life should be limited by her husband's wishes, but at Aunt Selma's, Badra begins to think about how she wants to live from now on.
She recalls her youthful curiosity about sex — what other girls' and women's bodies were like, her first attempts to spy on men, her fascination with the two beautiful prostitute sisters who lived outside Imchouk. When she develops a passionate, consuming relationship with a wealthy doctor, Badra remembers and rediscovers her own sexual being, in scenes that are erotic, revelatory, and sometimes bittersweet. Jane Hunter's translation gives us a book of great power that resembles a Muslim Vagina Monologues.
The Almond is an inspiring and illuminating novel that reminds us of the transformative power of desire and pleasure. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages.

Lumea araba si statutul femeilor asa cum nu le-am intalnit in nici o carte, in nici un film, iar de realitate nici nu mai vorbesc. Badra e o araboaica la fel ca toate celelalte pana isi paraseste barbatul libidinos si fuge in Tanger. Si pana incepe sa-si povesteasca viata, atat cea de dinainte de casatorie, din timpul ei si dupa ea.
E fortata sa se marite la 16 ani cu un notar de 40, dar dupa 5 ani fuge la matusa sa si descopera un cu totul alt stil de viata. Mai precis, unul scaldat in sex, des Lumea araba si statutul femeilor asa cum nu le-am intalnit in nici o carte, in nici un film, iar de realitate nici nu mai vorbesc. Mai precis, unul scaldat in sex, desfrau si tot ce nu e ingaduit femeilor musulmane. Daca n-ar fi povestile despre viata ei din trecut nici n-ai zice ca personajul principal apartine unei religii atat de restrictive in care femeile trebuie sa umble acoperite total.
In afara de bdsm, cred ca acopera majoritatea practicilor sexuale, mai mult de atat, Badra povesteste si despre copilaria ei destul de presarata cu episoade erotice. Interesant de aflat ca totusi tabu-urile lumii arabe sunt, din cand in cand, doborate. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed.
