- Nawal El Saadawi’s highly acclaimed feminist novel, Woman at Point Zero, follows the life of Firdaus, an Egyptian peasant girl, from her childhood of incomprehensible cruelty and neglect to her end in a grimy Cairo prison cell. From her earliest memories, Firdaus suffered at the hands of men—first her abusive father, then her violent, much older husband, to finally her deceitful boyfriend-turned-pimp. After a lifetime of abuse, she at last takes drastic action against the males ruling her life. Still as beautiful and cutting as it was when it was first published, this new edition will continue to resonate powerfully with readers for years to come.

“I had to read this book for a Non-Western Literature college course, and intitially I was suffering through it so I wouldn’t look like a fool when called on in class. However, when I actually sat down and thought about the true meaning behind this book, I was blown away by the empowerment and strength it offered. It takes a little while to realize what the author is really trying to get through the reader’s head, but once he or she catches it, it will open eyes.” By Sally Awesome
“I read this book for class but couldn’t put it down. It’s raw, full of rage, and a tour de force from start to finish. Recommend for absolutely everyone and anyone.” By Mnatale
