Waterstones Says

The author of the chilling Lullaby and Adele delivers her first work of non-fiction, an impassioned and enlightening account of female sexuality in the constrained Arab society of Morocco. Confronting prejudice and misogyny with piercing, intelligent prose and unrelenting candour, Sex and Lies is an essential contribution to a vitally important debate.

The first work of non-fiction in English from the prize-winning and internationally bestselling author of Lullaby and Adele

In these essays, Leila Slimani gives voice to young Moroccan women who are grappling with a conservative Arab culture that at once condemns and commodifies sex. In a country where the law punishes and outlaws all forms of sex outside marriage, as well as homosexuality and prostitution, women have only two options for their sexual identities: virgin or wife.

Sex and Lies is an essential confrontation with Morocco's intimate demons and a vibrant appeal for the universal freedom to be, to love and to desire.
