The View From Garden City by Carolyn Baugh.

The View From Garden City, by Carolyn Baugh.
Fictional stories of several Egyptian women of different classes, as told to an unnamed American student living in Cairo. Just a very well-written book, really showing what life in Egypt is like for many women, and sometimes the huge class gap. Lovely, lyrical descriptions of life in Cairo. It also makes a telling point about FGM, and why it continues…
