The Woman Who Flew

The Woman Who Flew - Nasreen Jahan The depressing life of a young lower-middle-class Bangladeshi woman who seeks solace in her imagination & art. I like the author's use of stream-of-conscious, the dream-like writing style, the description of early 90s Dhaka as a vibrant yet oppressive city, and her nuanced treatment of topics like politics, poverty, social norms, gender & sexuality.
