Reviews

Kabul Beauty School transcends the feel-good genre largely because of the author's superior storytelling gifts and wicked sense of humor * New York Times *
Bighearted and entertaining, Kabul Beauty School has a conversational style, but Rodriguez never shies away from the misery and oppression she encounters in the poor, rigidly patriarchal country * Entertainment Weekly *
Composed of heartbreak, hope, poignancy and candour * LA Times *
Colourful, suspenseful, funny... This witty and insightful memoir will be perfect for women's reading groups * Publishers Weekly *
A very gutsy, real-life adventure story for women . . . This lively memoir is full of darkly funny moments - a customer who had never seen a blow dryer thinks it's a gun and runs screaming from the salon chair - and the humor leavens the horror stories about life in this war-torn land * People *
[Rodriguez's] descriptions are endearingly frank (even about her own social gaffes), and her attempts to help those in need are inspirational and engaging * Washington Post *
