Publisher Comments:

When Mr. Zeitoun learns that his wife had left the house unaccompanied by a male member of the family, he turns to violence before he repudiates her three times upon her return. According to Islamic law he is unable to remarry his wife unless she is married and divorced to someone else. He convinces an unassuming neighbor, who happens to be a bachelor, to marry his wife with the understanding that after three months he will divorce her so she can then remarry Mr. Zeitoun. Mr. Zeitoun thought that he had taken care of the laws of God and society, yet he had not anticipated the turn of events his plan would take.
