Eight Mortal Ladies Possessed; A Book of Stories (A New Directions Book) by Tennessee Williams

A scandal that shocks a nation?nd a passion that transforms a woman. At the 1893 Chicago World? Fair, the modern, the exotic, and the ground-breaking collide. But Dora Chambers has more pressing matters to consider. Hoping to begin a life of wealth and privilege in Chicago, she sets out to earn the approval of the Fair? Board of Lady Managers to appease her ambitious, aloof husband. Unimpressed, they give Dora the distasteful task of enforcing proper conduct at the Egyptian belly dancing exhibition. But Dora? sensibilities are not so easily flustered. She finds herself captivated by these exotic women, and by their enigmatic manager, Hossam Faruk, who makes his mistrust of her known?lthough his lingering glances hint at something else. As Dora? eyes are opened to the world beyond a life of social expectations and quiet servitude, she finds the courage to break free of her self-imposed bondage, and discovers the truth about the desire and passion in her own heart.
