Review

"Salma has played a pioneering role in Tamil poetry, probing unexplored areas of middle class Tamil female experience. Hers is a domestic landscape, intimate in scale, mapping a word of sexual politics, the silences in family relaionships,...and unquestioned hierarchies." Poetry international --Poetry International

Product Description

Rabia is growing up in a conservative community in southern India. One day, she and her friends sneak off to the pictures. Caught on her return home, Rabia gets a beating from her mother, Zohra, who cries as she beats her daughter into submission. Firdaus is beautiful and of marriageable age. A groom is found for her, a wealthy man who lives abroad. On her wedding night, she takes one look at him and says, ‘I’m not going to live with you, don’t touch me!’ Inside their male dominated world, Rabia, Zohra, Firdaus, and many others make their small rebellions and compromises, friendships are made and broken, families come together and fall apart, and almost imperceptibly change creeps in. Salma’s beautiful, evocative, poetic novel recreates the sometimes suffocating, and sometimes heartbreaking world of Muslim women in southern India.
