Now you can download The Poison Tree - planted & grown in Egypt by Marwa Rakha for free (pdf).
The Poison Tree is a collection of essays and articles by Egyptian writer Marwa Rakha; it combines the techniques of blogging, journal-keeping, and formal writing while retaining one binding thought that keeps the story together. This is a book about love, marriage, divorce, sex, dating, virginity, adult dating, religion, shame, taboos, gender wars and fear that grew and blossomed on Marwa's poison tree.
I first read this book last year and I enjoyed reading it, simply because of Marwa's lovely writing style and ideas. Though I don't agree with everything that she writes about, nor with all her thoughts, I still like this book because of the way Marwa opens up and talks about her feelings, innermost thoughts, past relationships....etc. It's a book worth reading especially if you're not familiar with Egyptian women.
