About this item

In A Daughter of Isis, Saadawi paints a beautifully textured portrait of the childhood that molded her into a novelist and fearless campaigner for freedom and the rights of women. Walking through Fire takes up the story of her extraordinary life. We read about her as a rural doctor trying to help a young girl escape from a terrible fate imposed on her by a brutal male tyranny. We learn about her activism for female empowerment and the authorities that try to obstruct her. We travel with her into exile after her name is put on a fundamentalist death list. We witness her three marriages, each offering in their way love, companionship, and shared struggle. And we gain an unprecedented insight into this most wonderful of creative minds.
