Accidental Activist

daringDaring to Drive by Manal Sharif is a memoir of a woman who dared challenge religious restrictions on women in Saudi Arabia.  In her youth, she was a religious radical, but by her twenties she was a computer security engineer, which is one the kingdom’s restrictions began to chafe.  This is an ‘intimate memoir” of an “accidental activist.”  This Close to Happy by Daphne Merkin is a “dark yet vital memoir” that describes her battles with clinical depression and her “redemptive love of reading”.
