9780863563126: Menstruation: A Novel (Saqi Books)

Hasan, the local imam's son, has the strange ability to smell a menstruating woman among a thousand others. This helps him classify members of the opposite sex with whom he has little contact until the day he has a brief affair with a married woman. This sexual initiation irrevocably transforms him and shakes his entire system of beliefs. Hasan no longer knows what to believe in nor who is he, he just knows he has to avoid the marriage his father has arranged for him.

Hasan's story runs in tandem with Wisam's, a friend of his sister's, who is unhappily married and having her first lesbian relationship. Her sense of alienation from her husband, her frustration and her newfound sexuality echo Hasan's questions about religion, culture and sexuality.

Hasan and Wisam will both experience frustration, doubts and ultimately liberation in different ways. They previously held notions about religion and sexuality which are dramatically shaped by their new experiences and the influence of Nadim and Kindah, the progressive intellectuals who help them formulate a new worldview.

Abdulhamid's daring debut novel explores contemporary themes related to sexuality, self-realization and repression within a conservative religious framework and the ways people are able to reconcile themselves with a changing world.

Book Description:

Four stories intertwine in a ballet of lives: Kindah, the renowned Western-educated feminist; Nadim, her husband, a prominent scholar of Islamic history; Wisam, their neighbor, a newlywed; and Hasan, the young son of a local imam, whose mysterious powers emanate from a sense of smell so strong he can distinguish a menstruating woman from among a thousand others, the smell of lust, love, and hatred.

Ammar Abdulhamid is a writer born in Syria, who holds a Bachelor Degree in History from the University of Wisconsin.
