Gazelle tracks : a modern Arabic novel from Egypt by Mīrāl Ṭaḥāwī( )

36 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This short but cleverly crafted novel recounts the tale of Muhra, a young woman whose name means filly, born of the descendants of the Bedouin tribes who settled in Egypt's Delta Province of El Sharqiyya during the 18th and 19th centuries." "Past mingles with present and myth and folklore blend with reality, as the narrative voice records Muhra's quest as she seeks to discover the truth about her mother through the old family photographs that adorn the walls of her grandfather's house and other documents hidden away in cupboards and drawers." "At once both narrator and narrated, Muhra's tale of self discovery is set against the dwindling fortunes of her own people as they struggle to preserve their identity and culture amid the larger Egyptian community that encroaches upon them. At the same time her father's wanderings and ultimate demise reflect the waning star of the Arab tribes who once controlled large swathes of Egyptian territory and enjoyed the patronage of Kings and Princes." "Unwilling to give up despite premonitions of doom, Muhra's search leads her inexorably to the bitter truth about her mother's poignant life and tragic and untimely end."--Jacket
Blue aubergine by Mīrāl Ṭaḥāwī( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blue Aubergine tells the story of a young Egyptian woman, born in 1967, growing up in the wake of Egypt's defeat of that year, and maturing into womanhood against the social and political upheavals Egypt experienced during the final decades of the twentieth century. Physically and emotionally scarred by her parents and the events of her childhood, and incapable of relating to men, Nada, 'Blue Aubergine,' fumbles through a series of dark and unsettling adventures, resorting first to full Islamic dress with niqab and gloves and then throwing it all off for the flowing hair and tight clothes of an emancipated young graduate student, in an ever more desperate and ultimately failed search for tenderness and affection." "A frank assessment of the damage society wreaks by foisting unwise claustrophobic values on its children, this text shifts unpredictably through time and space like a sojourn in dream time. A mixed crowd of aunts and teachers, classmates and fellow students, Marxists and Islamicists are there to people Blue Aubergine's bewildering journey to the knowledge that the maintenance of chastity and innocence and her naive determination to cling to the threads of silk and lace that bind her to her past bring only misery and isolation."--BOOK JACKET
The tent : a novel by Mīrāl Ṭaḥāwī( )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in English and Arabic and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tent is a novel, featuring a host of women characters whose lives are subject to the will of a single, often absent, patriarch and his brutal foul-mouthed mother. Told through the eyes of a young girl, the lives of the Bedouin and peasant women unfold, revealing the tragedy of the sonless mother and the intolerable heaviness of existence." "Set against trackless deserts and star-filled night skies, the story tells of the young girl's relationship with her distant father and a foreign woman who is well-meaning but ultimately motivated by self-interest. It provides an intimate glimpse inside the women's quarters, and chronicles their pastimes and preoccupations, their stories and their songs."--Jacket

Nada er helt blå da hun kommer til verden i 1967 i Egypt, og kallenavnet Blå aubergine kommer helt av seg selv. Hun vokser opp som et vitebegjærlig barn, sterkt preget av skremmende barndomsopplevelser i en familie med beduinblod i årene. Hun finner veien til universitetet i Kairo, men overalt møter hun flere spørsmål enn svar. Egypt er i kontinuerlig forandring og Nada finner ikke svar, verken i tradisjonen eller blant opprørerne. "Teltet" finnes i norsk oversettelse av samme forfatter
