Summary, etc.: Fatima Mernissi tells a childhood behind the iron gates of a domestic harem and weaves her own memories with the dreams and memories of the women who surrounded her in the courtyard of her youth--women who, deprived of access to the world outside, recreated it from sheer imagination. Mernissi describes the politics of seductions, of the harem as a metaphor, and of the world beyond--every woman's inaccessible obsession.
