9780140149937: The Women of Deh Koh: Lives in an Iranian Village

“Masterful . . . absorbing. This finely written book gives us a whole new sense of Iran.”—The Washington Post Book World
 
While doing research in the Iranian village of Deh Koh, Erika Friedl was able to quietly observe and record the cloistered lives of women in one of the strictest of all Muslim societies. In this fascinating book, Friedl recounts these women’s personal stories as they relate the strain of their daily activities, their intricate relationships with men, and their hopes, dreams, and fears. Women of Deh Koh is a rare and vivid look at what life is really like for the women of Iran.
 
“Her intimate understanding of the life and customs of the village has made her confident about conveying her view from the inside. To share this view with us, and to comment quietly and wisely on the scene, is the striking and illuminating achievement of Women of Deh Koh.”—The New York Times Book Review

From Library Journal:

This book illuminates Iranian life with sympathy and understanding. It contains 12 chapters highlighting women's lives in an isolated Iranian village, less isolated today than a generation ago, but still dominated by tradition, religion, and a simplicity lost long ago in the city. The author, a trained anthropologist, skillfully portrays her heroines and their lives, characterized by major events such as motherhood, marriage, family crises, and constant struggle for livelihood in the sparse mountainous land. Her gentle and moving prose helps us understand a world different from our own, where religion and custom and family obligation have their own logic, infused with sorrow, but also joy and beauty. This should have some appeal. Recommended.
