The Women's Courtyard

The Women's Courtyard Khadija Mastoor's The Women's Courtyard

Aliya lives a life confined to the inner courtyard of her Home with her older sister and irritable mother, while the Men of the Family throw themselves into the political movements of the day. She is tormented by the petty squabbles of the household and dreams of educating herself and venturing into the wider world. But Aliya must endure many trials before she achieves her goals, though at what Personal cost?
Set in the 1940s, with Partition looming on the horizon, The Women's Courtyard cleverly brings into focus the claustrophobic lives of Women whose entire existence was circumscribed by the four walls of their homes, and for whom the outside World remained an inaccessible dream. Daisy Rockwell's elegant and nuanced translation captures the poignancy and power of Khadija Mastoor's inimitable voice.
