Ini buku kedua Nawal El-Saadawi yang saya koleksi setelah "Perempuan di Titik Nol". Ide ceritanya menarik... tapi gak tau kenapa, sampul buku edisi Indonesianya kok agak menganggu. Tampilan visualnya kurang oke. Terlihat suram... But anyway, Jatuhnya Sang Imam bisa dijadikan bacaan ringan di waktu senggang. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863563961, Paperback)

This powerful and poetic novel by "Egypt's most interesting feminist" (Booklist ) raises awareness of the predicament of women in Egypt. The book tells the story of Bint Allah, a beautiful illegitimate girl, whose father is the Imam—the religious ruler in Islamic society believed to be representative of God. Bint Allah is falsely accused by the Imam of adulterous relationships, then sentenced to death by stoning. It is through the eyes of Bint Allah that one can see the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state.
