MY MEMOIR (US)
This book took six years in the making. I wrote most part of it in Arabic and translated it into English. I shed tears and broke my heart 10s of times revisiting dairies, letters, photos, and memories kept locked. In a way, it was my best therapy.
This memoir is the first that is written with such intimacy and brutal honesty by any Saudi woman. I believe it won’t be the last but just the beginning of many to come to this world.
I’m honored and humbled by the attention my memoir got internationally. To mention a few, Oprah magazine named it #1 book for the summer read & Good Reads Choice Award 2017 ranked it #4 for the best memoirs of 2017.
