Reviews

"Female-centered #Dystopia from #Pakistan: Before She Sleeps, Bina Shah. Fascinating new angle on 'emotional work'!"--Margaret Atwood on Twitter
"Before She Sleeps stands on its own as a novel that will have readers contemplating rebellion and revolt, sex and power, and the many ways women's bodies are sacrificed for the good of society."--Booklist
"A haunting, dystopian thriller... Fans of The Handmaid's Tale won't want to miss this one."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"A timely novel of women's resistance and determination. ... Bina Shah has given us a welcome addition to the feminist dystopian thriller that expands the genre beyond a white-centric gaze. Women's stories and women's voices--in all our diversity--are important and Bina Shah's thriller is a necessary reminder."--Mona Eltahawy, author of Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution
"An overdue enlargement of the cultural conversation that [The Handmaid's Tale] continues to provoke."--Kirkus Reviews
"Charged and thrilling...exquisite...Shah develops her multiple characters beautifully...a thoughtful novel that will stick with me for a very long time."--Los Angeles Times
"Gripping, smart and dystopian in the most terrifying way, which is to say that it seems so very possible. Green City is the glossy, AI-powered, deeply misogynistic technocracy of our nightmares, which the free yet confined women of the Panah desperately struggle to defy."--Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood
"Shah's novel is both explicitly connected to Atwood's marvel [The Handmaid's Tale] and working to expand it by imagining what a secular, Middle Eastern Gilead might look like... One of the best books of the second half of 2018."--The Millions
"The most subtly disturbing of dystopias, richly textured and appallingly intimate, Before She Sleeps has hints of Huxley and Atwood but is uniquely Bina Shah."--Nick Harkaway, author of Gnomon and The Gone-Away World
