Reviews

"Al-Tahawy's narrative highlights the fissures between east and west, exploring cultural, religious and sexual differences. Hend, with her superstitious fatalism and borderline hysteria, is an awkward and often unattractive character, but her fears, dissatisfactions and vulnerabilities have an uncomfortable ring of truth."--The Guardian "Brooklyn Heights is memorable, not only for giving voice to marginal, oppressed, sometimes silent female characters but for evoking a vanishing world of those forced to leave their homeland. It is filled with the 'winds of longing' and distinctive scents."--Al-Ahram Weekly "A powerful and realistic portrayal of emigration and the process of adapting to a new place."--The UBS Review of Books "A novel to be embraced."--Mmegi Online
