'God created woman from a crooked rib and anyone who trieth to straighten it, breaketh it' Somali Traditional Proverb

FROM A CROOKED RIB is a beautiful, sparse, subtle account of the experience of a girl named Ebla, who runs away from her rural family, settles in Mogadishu, the capital, and marries an educated man with unhappy results. Told with complete conviction from a woman's point of view, the story is a moving celebration of the human spirit and challenge to traditional male chauvinism.
