Fatima Mernissi tells her memories of growing up in urban Morocco with stories of the women who surrounded her in the courtyard of her youth – her mother, aunts and cousins. Living in a domestic harem and deprived of access to the world outside, these women used their imagination to recreate their own place … a provocative story of a girl confronting the mysteries of time and place, gender and sex in the recent Muslim world.
