In Hala El Badry's prize-winning and controversial vel, A Certain Woman, Nahid is a woman searching for liberation, t from a repressive society or a male-dominated world, but from self-imposed taboos that inhibit a woman's ability to find fulfillment. In a narrative much excoriated by conservative critics, Nahid's adulterous affair becomes an occasion to explore the subtleties and contradictions that surround sexuality, desire and love.
Born in Cairo, Hala El Badry graduated from Cairo University and is now deputy editor-in-chief of Egypt's radio and television magazine. A Certain Woman, her fourth novel, was awarded the prize for best novel of 2001 at the Cairo International Book Fair.
