Staff Reviews


This is the tale of three generations of Palestinian women and how their culture affects them. What they grew up with in Palestine itself, and finally, being in America. This is a reminder that we should listen to women, hear their truths, and understand: there are many kinds of bravery.

A Woman Is No Man gives a rare and terrifying look into the lives of three generations of Palestinian and Palestinian-American women. Readers are invited into the secret world of these women living in Palestine and then Brooklyn; we watch nervously as they try to navigate and reconcile their two worlds — the violent, patriarchal world at home and the confusing, anti-cultural world outside their front door. I cringed at the pain and cheered at the successes of the women I came to know. This beautifully written book shines a light on an important topic. It is a story that must be told and, as importantly, must be heard.”
