A very entertaining story about a sheltered jewish woman blinded by Orientalist fantasies and tricked into marrying an Afghan man of power. After being imprisoned in a harem and suffering beatings and the gastrointestinal ravages of ghee-based cuisine, she finally returns to the evil, white and patriarchal United States, where she can pursue a useless graduate degree. In the end she learns that cultural relativism is a sham.
This should be a rite of passage for all liberal women.
