Nine Parts of Desire by Geraldine Brooks
Prize-winning journalist Brooks spent six years covering the Middle East through wars, insurrections, and the volcanic upheaval of resurgent fundamentalism. This book is the story of her intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils and of the often contradictory political, religious, and cultural forces that shape their lives.
