after the kiss salma gave to nasreen, i felt everything went down and once i scanned through the rest of the book, because it suddenly got to boring to read, i wondered what was the actual story of the book. what was the point? and if anyone can answer that question then that would be great.
It is a pleasure to read about a lesbian character who is fully human and whose sexual orientation is a given. I appreciate that Nasreen struggles with neither internalized homophobia nor intense social discrimination.
I highly recommend this nuanced, insightful, generous, concise, and beautifully-written book.
