Today the NY Post has her article, My life of hell in an Afghan harem
I once lived in a harem in Afghanistan.
I did not enter the kingdom as a diplomat, soldier, teacher, journalist or foreign aid worker. I came as a young Jewish bride of the son of one of the country’s wealthiest men. I was held in a type of captivity — but it’s not as if I had been kidnapped.
I walked into it of my own free will.
John Hinderaker blogged about her LIFE AMONG THE BARBARIANS
That Chesler survived the ordeal is little short of miraculous. Her story–please do check out the Post excerpt, and consider buying the book–is a revealing glimpse into a dysfunctional culture that has changed little if at all since the time when Chesler found herself its prisoner.
Phyllis is an excellent writer, and I’m honored to consider her a friend, so please buy her book. Her upcoming book events are:
