Softcover / / 114 pp
In these letters, written to Fawwaz Traboulsi, sent from Barcelona, Aix-en-Provence, Skopelos, Murcia, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, and Beirut in lieu of an essay on feminism for a special issue of his magazine Zawaya on “Arab Women,” Etel Adnan unfolds startling meditations on gender, place, culture, landscape, vision, eros, illness, mortality, and war. Of Cities and Women is a philosophical and poetic tour de force.
