A Woman Is No Man: A Novel


Book of the Month Club describes this story as an emotional, inspirational family drama: "Three generations of women weigh family duty and desire in a conservative Palestinian community in Brooklyn. Between navigating the conservative forces swirling within their households and upholding the family's honor, Isra and Deya struggle to stay true to themselves—and Rum's portrayal of their feats and flaws is masterful. This is one of those family sagas you'll read in one sitting without coming up for air."
