About my forthcoming book
Mooro, The Greater Freedom: Life as a Middle Eastern Woman Outside the Stereotypes
Part memoir, part social commentary, The Greater Freedom examines the blessings and burdens which form our cultural identities. Pulling from personal experiences, research, and conversations with other Middle Eastern women, the book focuses on the difficulties and misconceptions which many women face, putting the author’s experience of growing up between London and Cairo at the heart of this book.
Director of Amazon Publishing EU, Dominic Myers, described it as “both provocative and topical – we’re delighted to be bringing [Mooro’s] compelling voice to a wider readership”.
Publication is slated for autumn 2019.
Worldwide on Amazon.com, e-book, audiobook and at selected retailers.
