Fatima Mernissi. Translated from English by Yasmin Hussain. Simorgh, 2001
A translation by Yasmin Hussain of Fatima Mernissi’s Dreams of Trespass, Hudood Shikni Kay Khwabis a delightful account of life in a Moroccan harem. A pleasurable fusion of reminiscences and whimsical flights of the imagination, Mernissi narrates enchanting tales of the rigidly proper harem in Fez and the contrasting freedoms of the country harem where her grandmother Yakima lives. Hudood Shikni Kay Khwab is indeed a pleasure to read.
