Lol I’m lending this to my aunt so she can live a little. The Muslim one, of course.
I read Embroidery in the buses to work and felt at some moments that I was being a bit obscene, haha. It was such a cute, light-hearted read. I mean, these must have been a very well-off group of friends because, for one, they were so much more liberal with their talk and ideas than most women anywhere, and two, they travelled a lot, man! But it was super cute, and I will have such a group of friends meeting in my home to gossip like this when I’m old so my grandchildren can learn at my feet.
