May Book Club – Tues., May 12 at 6 pm

Nine Parts of Desire by Geraldine Brooks.

The New Yorker–Australian writer Geraldine Brooks is now known internationally for her bestselling novels, but as a foreign correspondent Geraldine spent six years covering the Middle East. And when her poised and sophisticated assistant at the Cairo bureau of the Wall Street Journal suddenly “adopted the uniform of a Muslim fundamentalist,” Geraldine Brooks set out to discover the truth about women and Islam.

Sometimes adopting a chador as camouflage, she was granted meetings (and often astonishingly intimate insights) by everyone from Queen Noor of Jordan to former Iranian President Rafsanjani’s daughter. She met with Palestinians protesting about “honor killings” for adultery and sheltered girls transformed into warriors by the Emirates armed forces. Throughout the Middle East, Brooks was invited into the homes and lives of these women where she found real stories that overturn western stereotypes.
