About This Item

New York: Grove Weidenfeld. 1990. Hardcover. Very Good. First Edition / Full number line. Spine is square and tight. Interior is unmarked. Cover is clean and crisp. Foxing to edges. Suitable for gifting. 321 pages.

In 1985 Hudson visited the village of Dulaba in The Gambia to help in some field studies there. He was so intrigued by what he saw that he decided to return. The book tells of the lives of the women, devout Muslims, who are circumcised in an all-female ritual, but who sing ribald songs.
