El Feki perfectly balances a journalist's eye and a creative writer's turn of phrase to offer us an incredibly important look at an underrepresented aspect of Egyptian life. With Arab women and their culture often othered and alienated in Western eyes, this intimate yet open mix of bold analytics and deeply personal stories gives us a complicated and multidimensional view of sex in a changing region, and what that means for its future.
