For Leila, each minute after her death recalls a sensuous memory: spiced goat stew, sacrificed by her father to celebrate the birth of a yearned-for son; bubbling vats of lemon and sugar to wax women's legs while men are at prayer; the cardamom coffee she shares with a handsome student in the brothel where she works. Each fading memory brings back the friends she made in her bittersweet life - friends who are now desperately trying to find her . . .

Great read!

It tells a story about friendships and families - and mainly a plot recounting Leila’s poignant journey towards her final moments before death - A great read if you wish to understand the lives of those who are marginalised.
