Wild Mulberries

Wild Mulberries is the story of Sarah, the adolescent daughter of a Lebanese sheikh in the 1930s. Although the area has seen financial hardship because of a sharp decline in the price of silk, Sarah's father insists on raising silk worms. His rigid dedication to the traditional method of silk production angers members of the family. As a result, Sarah flees Lebanon and the pressures of her family's conservatism in search of a mother she's never known. Younes provides a textured, personal window into a country on the brink of change, and a village that is holding on to its traditions despite Western influence and economic hardships.

Iman Humaydan Younes is a Lebanese novelist, short-story writer, and freelance journalist. Wild Mulberries is her second novel, after B as in Beirut (Arabia Books, 2009)

Reviews:

'Particularly striking is the strong focus on women's experiences within Lebanese society through multiple generations...an insightful, often beautiful portrayal of women's social bonds during another era.' - The Hour
