Females on the Nile
About the Book
Females on the Nile is a short story collection whose author, Heba Bendary, seems to have turned her pen into a camera that takes thrilling shots from various angles of a variety of critical situations in the lives of Egyptian women. These women belong to different age brackets, numerous personal backgrounds, diverse social classes, and various demographic and geographic settings. This book sheds light on the conditions of women in Egypt and probably in many other areas in the Middle East.
