Geraldine Brooks offers an intimate, often shocking portrait of the lives of modern Muslm women, and shows how male pride and despotic power have warped the original message of a once liberating faith. A captivating work of firsthand reportage, Nine Parts of Desire is also an acute analysis of the world's fastest-growing religion, deftly illustrating how Islam's holiest texts have been misused to justify repression of women.
