Critical Praise

"Harem reads like a wondrous cross between Colette and Sir Richard F. Burton. The dark lights and vivid tableaux Ms. Mossanen conjures stay with you long afterward. A very impressive, and adventurous, debut."

——Nicholas Christopher, author of Franklin Flyer

"A richly imagined feminist fable -- a feast for the senses."

——Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey, author of A Woman of Independent Means

"Dora Levy Mossanen's first novel, Harem, is truly astonishing."

——Robert Hellenga, author of The Sixteen Pleasures and Blues Lessons
