Summary: I was born in a harem in 1940 in Fez, Morocco... So begins Fatima Mernissi in this narrative of a childhood behind the iron gates of a domestic harem. She weaves her own memories with the dreams and memories of the women who surrounded her in the courtyard of her youth - women who, deprived of access to the world outside, recreated it from sheer imagination. Fatima Mernissi tells the story of a girl confronting the mysteries of time and place, gender and sex in the Muslim world of the latter half of the 20th century.
