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

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

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

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

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