Celestial Bodies

Celestial Bodies by Jokha Alharthi, translated from the Arabic by Marilyn Booth

In the first novel originally written in Arabic to win the Man Booker International Prize, and the first book by a female Omani author to be translated into English, the lives of three sisters and their families, their losses and loves, unspool beautifully against a backdrop of a rapidly changing Oman, a country evolving from a traditional, slave-owning society into its complex present.  Through the sisters, we glimpse a society in all its degrees, from the very poorest of the local slave families to those making money through the advent of new wealth.  Celestial Bodies marks the arrival in the United States of a major international writer.  Available on hoopla.
