Summary
"A haunting dystopian thriller" from the acclaimed author of A Season for Martyrs— "Fans of The Handmaid's Tale won't want to miss this one" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). In modern, beautiful Green City, the capital of Southwest Asia, gender selection, war, and disease have brought the ratio of men to women to alarmingly low levels. The government uses terror and technology to control its people, and now females must take multiple husbands to have children as quickly as possible. Yet there are some who resist, women who live in an underground collective and refuse to be part of the system. Secretly protected by the highest echelons of power, they emerge only at night to provide the rich and elite of Green City a type of commodity no one can buy: intimacy without sex. As it turns out, not even the most influential men can shield them from discovery and the dangers of ruthless punishment. This dystopian novel from one of Pakistan's most talented writers is a modern-day parable, The Handmaid's Tale for repressed women in Muslim countries everywhere. Before She Sleeps takes the patriarchal practices of female seclusion and veiling, gender selection, and control over women's bodies, amplifying and distorting them in a truly terrifying way to imagine a world of post-religious authoritarianism
