"A very courageous and illuminating book about women in the Arab world. It opens our eyes, destroys our prejudices and is very entertaining." —Mario Vargas Llosa, author and Nobel Laureate
"I Killed Scheherazade . . . is many things: a coming-of-age memoir, a sexual polemic and a spirited call to Arab women to stand up for themselves.
