Look Inside. Jul 14, Minutes Buy. A haunting and beautifully composed book.
It was translated into English last year to mixed reviews: readers found it flat, joyless; even those who liked it thought it uncomfortable, while some French journalists expressed surprise that a Moroccan-born woman would write such a book. In Morocco, where Slimani grew up, the penal code lays down imprisonment of up to a year for anyone engaging in sex before marriage, up to two years for adultery, and up to three for homosexual acts. Abortion is illegal except in cases of rape, severe embryo deformity or incest. Slimani cites research that estimates 24 babies are abandoned and nearly secret abortions are carried out daily. Sex and Lies is a response to this response — verbatim accounts of what the women said, some under real names, others not, interspersed with testimony from Moroccan experts and commentary from Slimani herself.
