Zeina ~ زينة

الكتاب الذي أخترت أن أقرئه الأن

the book I am reading right now, is an Arabic novel called Zeina

I bought this book in May when in the Virgin Bookstore in the Lebanese airport transit lounge.
I bought the book, knowing some information about the author, were a friend (who is against her, the author) told me she is quite open-minded, in a way that many traditional Egyptians would oppose her thoughts and books.
I bought it not caring what my friend told me, I have a brain and I can decide for myself if I like her book or not.

Here it goes:

والكاتبة هي نوال السعداوي, و كتبة هذا الأهداء في أول الكتاب:
إلى كل ألأطفال البنات و الأولاد،
الذين يولدون في الشارع،
دون أب ولا أم،
دون مدرسة ولا كنيسة ولا جامع،
دون أوراق مختومة بالنسر،
ثم يعيشون ويكبرون ويصبحون،
كواكب تقشع الظلام،
تمﻷ الأرض بالضوء،
وتغير العالم.
