Reviews

"The Carrie Bradshaw of Beirut." --"Sunday Telegraph" "The Oprah of Lebanon" --"T: The New York Times Magazine" "Beirut's body language pioneer." --"Washington Post" "Provocative and sensual." --"Huffington Post" "Sometimes, a revolution erupts when one person says, 'That--that is not me.' Joumana Haddad is a revolutionary, this book is the manifesto. Read it or be left behind." "--"Rabih Alameddine, author, "The Hakawati and Koolaids: The Art of War" "Joumana Haddad cannot be intimidated. This book is a lesson of courage for all those who fight to go beyond their own limits and chains." "--"Roberto Saviano, author, "Gomorrah" "A provocative new book [that] lifts the veil on love, sex--and what the 'Arab Spring' really means for women." --"Marie Claire" "A very courageous and illuminating book about women in the Arab world. It opens our eyes, destroys our prejudices and is very entertaining." Mario Vargas Llosa, author and Nobel Laureate" ""I Killed Scheherazade" . . . is many things: a coming-of-age memoir, a sexual polemic and a spirited call to Arab women to stand up for themselves. There is something in it for Western women, too. . . . The fate of the honor-killed, acid-scarred, burqa-bound Arab female has implications for the status of women worldwide." "New York Times Magazine"" "Provocative and sensual." "Huffington Post"" "Beirut's body language pioneer." "Washington Post"" "It takes genius to attain such radical freedom." "Etel Adnan"" "In this courageous book Joumana Haddad breaks down the taboo of the Silent Absent Arab Woman. Scheherazade has to die to be able to speak her true self, to tell her own story: that is, to become a human being." Elfriede Jelinek, winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Literature" "Whether defending her choice to speak frankly about sex or pointing a finger at Arab institutions for creating a culture of deceit and regression, [Haddad] exhorts fellow Arab women to challenge preset patterns of religion, culture, and sexuality. The time has come, she says, for women to think for themselves. She certainly does." "Booklist"" "Aprovocative new book[that]lifts the veil on love, sex--and what the 'Arab Spring' really means for women." "Marie Claire""
