The Golden Chariot

Salwa Bakr

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

From her cell in a women's prison, Aziza decides to create a golden chariot to take her to heaven, where her wishes and dreams can be fulfilled. As she muses on who to take with her, she tells the life stories of her fellow prisoners and decides in her heart which ones deserve a free ride to paradise. Aziza's cruelly frank comments about her friends and their various crimes including murder, theft, and drug-dealing weave these tales together into a contemporary Arabian Nights.
