رواية قلما نجد مثلها فأحداثها تقع في سجن النساء ولكن المميز فيها ليس هذا فقط وإنما في بطلتها تلك "العزيزة" الاسكندرانية التى تحيا بين قضبان فوق قضبان ، قضبان السجن المادي الذي دخلته وهى لم تزل في مرحلة شبابها وقضبان الأفكار والهواجس .. قضبان تفكير لا ينقطع وقلق لا يهدأ .. شخصية عائشة على الذكريات حلوها ومرها ذكريات البيت وزوج الأم .. ذكريات معجب أو محب .. خيالات النجوم التى تتلألأ أمامها من العالم الخارجي عبر نافذة الزنزانة .. نافذة طالما أرادت تحطيمها فتهرب إلى عنان السماء في عربتها الذهبية ولكن أتستطيع العربة الذهبية الصعود إلى السماء.. إقرأ الكتاب لتعرف الجواب

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION: ENGLISH EDITION From her cell in a women's prison, Aziza decides to create a golden chariot to take her to heaven, where her wishes and dreams can be fulfilled. As she muses on who to take with her, she tells the life stories of her fellow prisoners and decides in her heart which ones deserve a free ride to paradise. Aziza's cruelly frank comments about her friends and their various crimes-including murder, theft, and drug-dealing-weave these tales together into a contemporary Arabian Nights. Salwa Bakr takes a wry and cynical look at how women from widely differing backgrounds, some innocent and some guilty, come together in a single prison ward. Salwa Bakr's writing depicts life at the grassroots of Egypt's culture, admiring its resilience in the face of poverty and inequality. With a strong distrust of imported kitsch, western consumerism is contrasted with the indigenous culture. In The Golden Chariot, Salwa Bakr opens a magical door, through which we are able to see the injustices of a society in transition. Beyond these stories of crime, we glimpse the yearning and longing for a better life, and the problems of not being able to realize these dreams by honest means.
