For Magnificent Magazine
This book was written by the famous writer and blogger Marwa Rakha It is the best Egyptian book about the man-woman relationship, rebelling on a traditional male dominated culture. It will make you laugh at some situations and cry at others.
The poison tree is not a traditional novel; it combines the technique of blogging, journal- keeping and formal writing discusses love, marriage, sex, dating, religion, shame, taboos, gender wars and the fears that grew and blossom on Marwa Rakha's tree.
Also, listen to her broadcasts on Nile FM .They are enjoyable and very
