My Girlhood by Taslima Nasrin

my girlhood by taslima nasrin

My Girlhood by Taslima Nasrin was originally published in 1998. It has now been translated by Maharghya Chakraborty and published by Penguin.

Set in the backdrop of the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, this book recollects Taslima Nasrin’s early years. From her birth on a holy day to the dawn of womanhood at fourteen to her earliest memories that alternate between scenes of violence, memories of her pious mother, the rise of religious fundamentalism, the trauma of molestation and the beginning of a journey that redefined her world, My Girlhood is a tour de force.
