Voices in the Desert: The Anthology of Arabic-Canadian Women Writer
These nine stories are representative of an literature that exploded onto the Canadian literary scene in the 1970s, produced in first-generation Arabic-Canadian feminist literary circles. Reflective of the rich and varied experiences of these women, it appears in various genres and covers styles ranging from the realist to the postmodernist. Written in French, English, and Arabic, this literature bears the indelible mark of exile, and can presently join ranks with "other solitudes" Canada has come to acknowledge, admit, and embrace.
