I love to read and I blog about it.

The Proof of the Honey

The Proof of the Honey - سلوى النعيمي, Salwa Al Neimi, Cal Perkins Excerpt from Linus's Blanket - The overarching plot here is thin but the novella is very interesting in terms of shedding new light on women’s relationships and sexuality in Arabic culture through women’s personal reflections on their lovers. The vignettes that the women offer here are varied and engaging. The novella is an arresting meditation on the sexual evolution of a woman deeply affected by an intense love affair. Though not perfect its execution, The Proof of Honey is a thought provoking book to contemplate on an afternoon.
