From the prize winning and bestselling author of Lullaby
and Adele: a fascinating and witty collection of
essays on the lives of women grappling with sexual
politics in a deeply conservative culture.
In these essays looking at sexual politics in Morocco, Leila Slimani gives
voice to young Moroccan women who are grappling with a conservative Arab
culture that at once condemns and commodifies sex. In a country where the
law punishes and outlaws all forms of sex outside marriage, as well as homosexuality
and prostitution, women have only two options for their sexual
identities: virgin or wife. Sex and Lies is an essential confrontation with Morocco's
intimate demons and a vibrant appeal for the universal freedom to be,
to love and to desire.
