About the Book

She moved her body lightly and gracefully like a butterfly stroked by wind. On her bare feet and galvanizing figure, she augmented the art of belly dancing and embraced it to stages of poise, away from vulgarity.


Known to be the most influential and underrated woman of her time for her captivating performances, for her charitable accomplishments, and for startling the respectable society of the Middle East with her feminist drive, her liberal beliefs, and her provocative life.


Kahraman is a novel, set in the 1950’s in Egypt, when theatre, music and cinema were at their peak of glory, but at its core is the story of a woman who tiptoed on history by simply being herself.
