They offer a rare insight into the traditional and changing roles, relationships and expectations of women in a patriarchal society. Poignant and thought-provoking, this anthology offers a representative selection from the past three decades of works by the best-known women writers in Saudi Arabia. The authors' stories of their patriarchal society afford rare insight into the traditional and changing roles, relationships, and expectations of modern Saudi women. The editors provide an introductory essay on modern Saudi culture, as well as background on each of the major themes addressed in the stories. Students, scholars, and general readers of Middle Eastern literature will find this collection both entertaining and enriching."@en ;
