New in Memoir – On The Edge of Being: An Afghan Woman’s Journey

A vivid account of youth in Afghanistan, where coming to grips with her sense of womanhood, Dr. Sharifa Sharif gives a firsthand view of the repressive, violent and sometimes redemptive aspects of Afghan society. The scope of the book spans Afghanistan’s provinces, as Dr. Sharif and her family live for several years in villages where her father, a politician, governs. Vignettes from her life collide with other women at all levels of Afghan society, and thus the first hand account gives a clearer picture of women’s experience over time.
