AS A PATRIARCHAL FOLK TALE MAGICa patriarchal folk tale magic in cruelly misogynistic hands This is a hard book because of its Raquel, the Jewess of Toledo unflinching vision and its rejection of the exercise of power masuerading as God s will Oh how to review this book I was excited to read this book given that it was a new international fiction emerging voices book from Jordan I love reading authentic voices from non western countries especially from the Middle East where we get too many western voices trying to tells how women in particular there supposedly experience life And well I guess this IS one voice And it IS a legitimate voice The truth is that there are a lot of women abused and subjugated by men especially in villages in the Middle East according to longstanding cultural beliefs as well as so called religious beliefs The Shadow at the Bottom of the World uneducated men totallyneducated in religion believing that their misogynist cultural ideas are actually religion And the book totally and completely focuses on this fact in its story and it does it in a very lyrical poetic manner This for me was really the only strength of.

I read this for my Arab American Women Writers class I don t really remember what the book was about Something about an Arab woman escaping the clutches of her cruel brother finding love losing love blah blah blah The sual romantic stuff except it was in Arabia in the early 20th century Not only a fascinating exploration of the kind of life many arab women face it was also a page turning good read I d definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to get into woman centric Arab literature and to those in love with literary criticism It seems easy on the surface but this novel is an incredibly complex exploration of truth lies and whether we can ever really separate the two Pillars of Salt is a story about two women locked away in mental institution Their diagnosis Womanhood inconvenience courage to express their opinion The author is weaving their sad histories in very dreamlike style transferring the reader to the banks of Dead Sea and Jordanian desert smelling the heavy scent of oranges and cardamon I rather enjoyed it although sometimes I struggled to The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet! understand the message as the character s monologues kept changing focus on different things and exclaiming in between Maybe it s caused by the translation or completely my fault as I do not have much experience with Middle East style of communication Iite enjoyed this book it showed me yet another nknown corner of world teeming with cultural differences and at the same time familiarity Women suffer in each society there is no exception to name The only difference is in how they bear this suffering and how the society allows them to express themselvesRead as a part of Around the world in books challenge month of January dedicated to Jordan A disturbing haunting story of two women who have very little in common just their daring to oppose their treatment and the punishment that follows Lyrical intense and painting a dark image of a country regaining its identity I have this irk when it comes to international literature Some criteria let s sayI want to read for example a book from JordanTo be an 100% Jordanian book the author has to be born in Jordan to live in Jordan write in Arabic and write about JordanWith this book we are at 60 70 dia Fair was born in Jordan but now lives in Durham UKShe writes about Jordan but in EnglishSo I might need to read one from Jordan originally written in Arabic by an author who mainly lives in JordanIto Ogawa s book The Restaurant of Love Regained was at 100%Ito Ogawa was born in Japan lives in Japan the book was written in Japanese and takes place in JapanAll these of course are statistical irks They make a book authentic but that doesn t downgrade in no way the importance of a book like Fair s Pillars of Salt if it s at 60%Kazuo Ishiguro was 5 when he arrived in the UK hence he is a British authorFadia Fair was 28 when she arrived in the UK so that makes her both British and Jordanian authorBut as I said these are interesting facts and irks for a registrar kind of person like me one who always keeps records of births descents and dates Okay enough with the above let s move to the actual review of the bookIt is a tale that takes place in Jordan during the early 20th centuryWe have two narratives The present and the pastThe present takes place in a mental hospital and two women narrate to each other their livesTheir narrations of the past comprise the second narrative that of the pastThere s also a third narrative which is symbolic and brief from the point of view of an omniscient male Unti Love Street Book unnamed yet misogynist narrator a narrative that interrupts once in a while the main narratives of the two womenTwo women that suffered for different reasonsA book in which we see the lives of women and Jordanians in general during the British Protectorate Emirate of TransjordanOne country that the British were brutally protectingnder their imperialistic wingsEven though this book was a first time experience about life in Pillars of salt franaise – Linguee De trs nombreux exemples de phrases traduites contenant pillars of salt – Dictionnaire franais anglais moteur de recherche de traductions franaises fr Pillars of Salt Monuments of Grace New Not Retrouvez Pillars of Salt Monuments of Grace New England Crime Literature And the Origins of American Popular Culture et des millions de livres Pillars of Salt by Fadia Fair Goodreads The fiction novel Pillars of Salt by Fadia Faui is part of series known as the “International fiction emerging voices” These books focus on sharing stories from countries outside their original borders Fadia Faui writes Pillars of Salt to share the live of women in anti feminist countries This novel takes place during

Book the ality of its poetic writing There are three main voices in the book two women and one storyteller The two women represent women s voices both totally and completely subjugated and destroyed by the men in their lives one by her brother and the men in her village the other by her husband and then her son s disloyalty to her The storyteller is a disgusting voice that shows the reader in all its disglory how the misogynist Arab male thinks about woman they re dirty and temptresses and align themselves with black magic against menThroughout the book I did get to know the various characters I appreciated Maha s attempts to build a life for herself despite her brother s attempts to constantly keep her down Her attempts to build a home both a house and trees and crops and a community and a family And yes I greatly disliked her brother and all of the horrible things he did to Maha and the other women in her community I also appreciated Um Saad s attempts to build a family and a marriage despite the sheer weight of constant housework and the lack of love or appreciation from her husband But somehow I just never really grew terribly connected to any of these characters Or invested in them Not in the same way that I have with characters in other books that I have readI در آخرین روزهای رضاشاه understand that books are not expected to cover ALL aspects of a society Or cover all voices And that the point of this author s book was to express the voice of suppressed subjugated women in Jordan in a particular time the 1950s before Jordanian independence But what disappointed me was that in the West we already hear from every single corner how yes Arab women are oppressed Yes they don t have voices Yes Arab men are misogynists and and just see women are human beings And yes Islam is to blame for all of this hatred towards Arab women from Arab men So for an Arab woman to confirm all of these western beliefs I think just adds to a general lack of REALnderstanding of the complexity of the Middle East Because while YES there is a ton of suppression of women in the ME and yes a lot of it is due to cultural beliefs and mid educated religious beliefs and yes a lot of it is done by men that is not the ONLY Middle East And due to the lack of REAL education among the West regarding the Middle East one author not adding NUANCE to nderstanding the region to me does everyone a disservice Because the truth is that there are educated practicing Muslim men who treat their wives with the love and respect that Islam demands of them And fathers and brothers and community male leaders and religious leaders as well And there are educated Muslims and non Muslim educated religion women such as Christians and Orthodox Christians and Jews who are STRONG and opinionated and demand their rights legal rights religious rights moral rights from the men and women around them because they
know it is their RIGHT to demand them There are kindit is their RIGHT to demand them There are kind loving men kind women and loving women who all work together to raise beautiful loving and compassionate boy and girl children to be leaders in their communities Personally I would like a NUANCED book In the village in this book I know there were loving marriages loving relationships brothers and sisters who were friends to each other etc I just didn t need another book confirming western stereotypes ie Arab women throw off your veils and demand
your rights Leave your religion and become western and you ll be freerights Leave your religion and become western and you ll be free s See even the Jordanian author now living in England raised in Jordan agrees Me I d rather read some books written by Jordanian authors about the ntold Jordanian women fighting for their rights changing their communities running schools for hundreds and thousands of girls running for and winning elections starting businesses and yes the Arab men working alongside them with them believing in their sisters and mothers and daughters and wives rights as well Because YES those are stories of Jordan as well.
