The Circling Song
Nawal El Saadawi
Hamida and Hamido are twins, grown from a single embryo inside one womb. Violently parted, they search the city in the darkening circles of a dream, only to find, lose and again find each other, each time as if it were the first. Their journey - terrifying and exact - leads to an unbroken cycle of corruption and brutality.
"Without doubt the most prominent and prolific female author in Arabic: Nawal El Saadawi has the uncanny ability to place her finger on the hot buttons that inflame Arab readers."
"To read this book is like looking into a kaleidoscope; as each new element in the story is added, so a new configuration is formed."
"Nawal El Saadawi writes with directness and passion."
