Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Nasrin's voice is the voice of humanism everywhere."—Wole Soyinka

"Taslima Nasrin has spoken out about the oppression of women under Islam, and what she's said needed saying."—Salman Rushdie

Revenge is a delicious novel about getting even from one of the most controversial and internationally acclaimed writers of her generation.

In modern Bangladesh, Jhumur marries for love and imagines life with her husband, Haroon, will continue much as it did when they were dating on her university campus. But once she crosses the threshold of Haroon's family home, Jhumur finds she is expected to be the traditional Muslim wife: head covered, eyes averted, and unable to leave the house without an escort. When she becomes pregnant, Jhumur is shocked to discover that Haroon doesn't believe the baby is his. Overwhelmed by his mistrust, Jhumur plots her revenge in the arms of a handsome neighbor. Readers from every walk of life will be stunned by this tale of love, lust, and blood ties.

Taslima Nasrin, an award-winning writer and human rights activist, is known for her powerful writing on women's oppression and unflinching criticisms of Islam, despite forced exile and multiple fatwa calling for her death. In India and Bangladesh, Nasrin's fiction, poetry, memoirs, and essays have topped bestseller lists abroad since the 1990s and have been translated into twenty languages.

Synopsis:

Between husbands and wives, sometimes revenge is the best way to get even.
