Letters to My Daughters
A MemoireBook - 2011
In the vein of Infidel comes this spellbinding memoir of survival and courage from Afghanistan's most popular female politician. On the day Fawzia Koofi was born, her mother set her under the blazing Afghan sun to die. She was the nineteenth child of twenty-three in a family with seven wives, and her mother did not want another daughter. Despite severe burns that lasted into her teenage years, Fawzia survived and became the favourite child. In Letters to My Daughters, Fawzia tells her remarkable life story. Fawzia 's father was an incorruptible politician strongly attached to Afghan tradition.
