Summary
Reveals the social, romantic, and sexual tribulations of four young women from the elite classes of Saudi Arabia. Every week after Friday prayers, an anonymous female narrator sends e-mails to the subscribers of her listserv. In fifty such e-mails, spanning more than a year, she unfolds little by little the reality of a small group of girlfriends--Garmrah, Michelle, Sadeem, and Lamees--as they negotiate their love lives, their professional successes, and their rebellions, large and small, against their cultural traditions
