About the Author :

Born in 1970 in Beirut, Joumana Haddad is an award-winning poet, literary translator, magazine publisher and journalist. Joumana is the cultural editor for the an-Nahar newspaper. In 2008 she launched the Arab world’s first erotic cultural magazine, Jasad (Body), which made headlines around the world, leading the Sunday Telegraph to dub her The Carrie Bradshaw of Beirut’. She was chosen as one of the best Arab authors under 39 in 2009 (Beirut39), and acts as the administrator of the International Prize of Arabic Fiction (the Arab Booker’). Joumana was the recipient of the Blue Metropolis (Montreal) Al Majidi Ibn Dhaher Arab Literary Prize in 2010.
She lives in Lebanon with her two sons.

Review :

"A very courageous and illuminating book about women in the Arab world. It opens our eyes, destroys our prejudices and is very entertaining."  —Mario Vargas Llosa, author and Nobel Laureate



"I Killed Scheherazade . . . is many things: a coming-of-age memoir, a sexual polemic and a spirited call to Arab women to stand up for themselves. There is something in it for Western women, too. . . . The fate of the honor-killed, acid-scarred, burqa-bound Arab female has implications for the status of women worldwide."  —New York Times Magazine



"Provocative and sensual."  —Huffington Post

"Beirut's body language pioneer."  —Washington Post

"It takes genius to attain such radical freedom."  —Etel Adnan

"In this courageous book Joumana Haddad breaks down the taboo of the Silent Absent Arab Woman. Scheherazade has to die to be able to speak her true self, to tell her own story: that is, to become a human being."  —Elfriede Jelinek, winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Literature

"Whether defending her choice to speak frankly about sex or pointing a finger at Arab institutions for creating a culture of deceit and regression, [Haddad] exhorts fellow Arab women to challenge preset patterns of religion, culture, and sexuality. The time has come, she says, for women to think for themselves. She certainly does."  —Booklist

"A provocative new book [that] lifts the veil on love, sex--and what the 'Arab Spring' really means for women."  —Marie Claire
